We warned you about this only a few days ago but it has now become all too clear, John Frusciante has left The Red Hot Chili Peppers for good (Which doesn’t mean much, looking at his track record for leaving…) in a statement on his own website the man himself not only confirms his leaving but also states that we’re all shite journalists and this happened over a year ago

“When I quit the band, over a year ago, we were on an indefinite hiatus. There was no drama or anger involved, and the other guys were very understanding. They are supportive of my doing whatever makes me happy and that goes both ways.”

As for the reason of his departure he says

“Over the last 12 years, I have changed, as a person and artist, to such a degree that to do further work along the lines I did with the band would be to go against my own nature.¬† There was no choice involved in this decision. I simply have to be what I am, and have to do what I must do.”
