Is it me or has John Frusciante's playing gone downhill since he left the band in '92? I thought his playing on BSSM was amazing, but now he just seems to noodle away, and his guitar solos sound amateur at best. I know he did a lot of drugs after he quit the band, but how much did he really do? I've played guitar for years and thought John's work on BSSM and Mother's Milk was that of a genius. His whole Hendrix vibe mixed with funk makes me salivate, but sometimes I wonder what would've happened if they stuck with Dave Navarro.
