“Omar Rodríguez helped me a lot. When I met him he came from a punk scene, but he liked to do things solo, play very fast, stuff I could do. That gave me the courage to put out that part of me to be able to create guitar solos that really exposed that emotional side; I was able to find the way to do it without getting too carried away, but also without setting myself any limits.” (John Frusciante)
