Since it’s (relatively recent) release, a mere ten years ago in 2004, I have quite literally lost count of the number of times I’ve listened to it, both on CD and vinyl. Yep, I bought it twice. That record is John Frusciante’s The Will To Death.

I am unhappy about non-stop, social-media-style “sharing” because I feel it demeans music, turning something that is first and foremost a deep, internal experience into a unyielding, external kind of currency.

In a performance it is not necessary to point out every single interesting detail of the music to the audience like a mad professor with a laser pen. In fact, what often works well is picking one really special moment and doing something musically magical with it, leaving the rest as simple as possible. If some special effect happens in every second of the music, it all begins to sound the same.
