His life story is like some kind of Greek myth. A (let's face it, beautiful) man is born with virtuosic musical talent and finds success at a young age. While he has grown to become proud and self-confident, he is unable to cope with such sudden meteoric fame, and retreats into his own little world of drugs, writing and art. After five years of self-destruction, he is hanging onto the last threads of his life. But neither heroin nor the fire of his house could kill him, and he emerges reborn, a person who has been stripped down to his rawest elements and slowly rebuilt. His experience has made him realise what is truly important, his position on the cliff edge of death has made him value and appreciate life. He returns to the world a more humble and ambitious person. ...I have too much time on my hands.

the story he tells about 'ghosts on the record' at 3:50 is so heavy man. flea is such an amazing person, to realize that john was having psychotic episodes during that time and to protect him like that is really just incredible.

"Blood Sugar Sex Magik" and "Mother's Milk" are heavily occult albums. I mean, just look at the album titles, lol. I normally don't believe in the super natural. But Hollywood and it's connection to the music industry has something creepy and dark to it. Also the connection between Aleister Crowley, Ron Hubbard and John Parsons, also Charles Manson. California is weird in a dark way. Open your eyes.

+mhoops96 Flea said Heroin was too much to handle and they used to joke back when Hillel was alive that all you had to do was show Flea a bundle of H and he'd throw up. I read that in Anthony's book Scar Tissue.

As strung-out as John was during this interview, he was still more intelligent and well spoken than many sober and "together" people.

oxrjbizzle1984y Seriously look it up. Kurt didn't kill himself. Donut deny it outright - do a TINY bit of research on it, then tell me what you think. Courtney did it, and there was an amazing motive.

No one chooses to have a mental illness. You have absolutely no idea what addiction is like. It's one of the most horrendous and cruel things a human being can possibly endure and the fact that this "dumbass" survived it in the state he was in shows he likely has more will than either of us combined.

And after reaching this rock-bottom low, RHCP get him back into the band, and he helps produce their best and most popular material, until he leaves again. Thanks John.

Californication was a big disappointment, One Hot Minute was their last excellent album (and even different from the style they had on BSSM, which is still today their artistic peak) but fanboys att just wanted "John Back"and forgot how RHCP used to be (even with Navarro), they only need the (second) original lineup and fuck off the music and the legacy. it was an ugly and souless comercialization at the time and it aged horribly, it is one of the few records in my collection i regret buying.

thePraisedBry yeah ok man. I started doing heroin because all my idols made great music on it, thinking i would make great music and it ended up destroying my life and all my relationships. But yeah I guess this guy is a "pussy" for not wanting that.

You're a good and smart person for saying that. I'm also staying away from illegal drugs. And alcohol and cigarettes too.
