glad josh was willing to stepout when john got his motivation back. this was what I had hoped would happen, he'd take some time off and then get back to it.

Josh really didn't have a choice really.

John is like that true love that you can’t get over and you would drop anything and anyone for when he decides he wants you back and even though you know he’ll probably leave you again, you still take him back cause it’s so magical when you’re together.
With that said; I’ll miss josh. He loves that band and because of that, we were able to hear songs live that they would not and will not play with John. Josh has a big heart and I’m sure he’s just as excited as we are to hear a new album with John

Exactly! Thats also shows that they got no self respect. I mean the guy leaves and come back has many times he wanted. No wonder he always acted like a primadonna. I guess the money was not coming in,so he return again.
Bring back Navarro and forget this diva

andré pereira you’re mistaken - he’s never acted like a primadonna, and he doesn’t seem in the least bit money oriented. Watch his interviews and you’ll realise he’s a humble, spiritual person who’s overcome substantial mental health problems and become an extremely creative, exceptional artist. He has huge integrity - a rare quality in the rock & roll hall of fame.

Irena Halder Don't want to change your mind on him,but i totally disagree. He always acted like RHCP was HIS band,acted like he was the original guitarrist,like they don't have a great history and music before and without him!
Not to mention he was kinda disrespectful towards Navarro's work with the band,just taking AK"pains and beefs"without question (forgeting during Navarro phase,he was not in the band but instead he was on massive drugs private trip).
He also refuses to play OHM songs live (that Josh was real humble enough to bring back for their live set. Btw,lets see now what will happen about that..) and didn't like the album,but it's funny that everything they did after its closer to that than the funky stuff from MM or BSSM.
Josh seems to be a nice guy but he was their"weakest"guitarrist that recorded an album with them ( his musical approach was too much diferent,even Fea said that) but i almost bet that John will say it was great.
The fact that he was tired of being a rockstar and quit the band,but returned,for 2 times says it all. And i also think that he take his lesson on"humbleness"from Cobain (that he's such a massive fan) ,once he used to act like a"guitar hero"in late 80's and early 90's but when he returned to the band he was more low profile,"tame"and moderate. You can check this by his music and image before and after.
I don't hate the guy,he's a great player and i respect his struggle with adiction in the past,but i can honestly say that Hillel,Sherman and Navarro are my favorites.

Wondering if John will refuse to play the song's that Josh wrote with the band just like he did with Dave Navarro's material from One Hot Minute. I love John but he needs to stop being a Primadonna .

Tess Tikles I hope they put it in writing that he’s got to play music from every era!

Tess Tikles he’s no primadonna - he had good reasons for not wishing to play those songs, and his explanation made perfect sense. The rest of the band don’t much like those songs either.
