Non Frusciante

It's official. Guitar hero John Frusciante won't be returning for the Chili Peppers 10th album, and has officially left the band. According to his website, he left 12 months ago while the band took a hiatus.

The Empyreum still ranks as one of my albums of the year. Read the review here.

Judas!

Saw Bob Dylan at Brixton last night.... and was distinctly disappointed. Especially after shelling out £40 for the honour.
