5. I've always wondered what it was like recording “You Oughta Know”. To me, it really shows the chemistry you have with Flea. Did you and Flea record live together on that one? Did you guys have guide tracks already laid out for you to follow or did you get to sort of find your own way with it?
Flea and I did that song together in the studio. It was already written with different instrumentation and we were asked to kind of re-write the music... A lot like a re-mix. The structure of the song was in place but there were no guide tracks, we just had the vocal to work from. It was just a good time and we basically jammed until we found something we were both happy with. Alanis was happy too.
7. I was just wondering whats your whole opinion on John Frusciante leaving the Chili Peppers once again?
Like a lot of the die hard fans I am sorry to see him go. John has been a source of magic for that band that hasn't been there in any incarnation since Hillel. Still, I understand that as an artist there might be different places he wants to go creatively and I look forward to those efforts. I am also a huge fan of Josh Kilnghoffer and look forward to what he will bring. We still get the band with a new artist who will step into the light and we will still hear from John. Not the worst deal in the world.
