How he got interviews?[edit]

Not explained how he joined the band.

Personal Life[edit]

Why was that section removed? There is no mention on John's past relationships, getting married, being the godfather to Flea's daughter or the restraining order he filed against a stalker. All of this is pretty important info in a person's bio. Jason1978, talk 4:39, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Nicole Turley[edit]

Are John and Nicole married now? Thanks 86.128.27.70 (talk) 21:04, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Recent activity[edit]

I know the editors responsible for bringing this article to FA status are not around any more, but does anyone have thoughts about how to classify Frusciante's activity in the last year or two? He released Outsides last year and it kind of got tacked on to the "Switch to electronica" section of the article. But, is it really electronica or should there be a new heading? --Laser brain (talk) 15:06, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

His role in the untimely death of River Phoenix[edit]

Anyone familiar with the relationship between John Fusciante and River Phoenix, has heard at least one or twice in the media, TV, tabloid or paper, of John's rumoured involvement in the facilitation of drugs to River Phoenix on the night of Oct 31, 1993. Its strange that after so much time and so much speculation has elasped over the incident, the issue still remains in the eye of the public 20+ years later, yet the persons responsible for this page refuse to even make mention of their relationship, never mind the topic at hand. The latest piece on this particular topic was published a few months back in the book "Last Night at the Viper Room" by Gavin Edwards. Here is an excerpt:

"12:45 A.M.: A GUITARIST FRIEND of River's came over to his table holding a cup. "Hey Riv, drink this. It'll make you feel fabulous," he told him. River didn't know what was in it, but since he had taken this friend to rehab twice, he could guess it wasn't ginger ale....

In the drink was a dissolved speedball: a mixture of cocaine and heroin. The Heroin circulating in L.A. that fall included a particularly potent variety of Persian Brown. River immediately felt unwell, "What did you give me? What the fuck is in it?" he shouted. To calm himself down, River took some Valium, which didn't seem to do the job. Soon he had vomited on himself and the table. He then slumped in his chair, unconscious."

The whole subject of the matter wont simply die by snowing over the issue, especially with River's newfound popularity with a new generation of 20 somethings. Kingsly Alexander (talk) 01:39, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
