Josh Klinghoffer blogs about the remaining I’m With You B-Sides

After blackening a q-tip with the desert sand from last night, I used my ears to help Andrew mix the final song for the extra songs from the ‘I’m With You’ sessions. I’d like to apologize for getting a bit behind schedule with these releases. After my foot injury, it was hard to get off my arse durning our breaks from tour. I apologize. I’d like to take a moment and publicly thank Andrew Scheps for all of his wonderful work on these songs. It’s been a wonderful experience that I’m very grateful for. Thank you to Andrew…and everyone who worked on ‘I’m With You.’ As there is one more show in the ‘I’m With You’ tour, I’d also like to thank everyone, everywhere who came to see us play. It’s an honour for me. [x]

"Like John Frusciante – I’ll never be him. I can never be another person. I can only be me, and hopefully people will like it. I mean, I’ve been a fan of this band since I was 10 years old, so it’s hard to sit and go, ‘You’re playing songs off of Blood Sugar…’ But like I said, you just have to be yourself, play the song as yourself – that’s what I’m reminded of every time I play with them.” - Josh Klinghoffer

I don’t feel like I ever give John Frusciante enough credit. I can never find the words to express how I feel about him. I mean, he’s been through so much…he could have ended like Hillel but he pulled through, and I’m happy he did. RHCP definitely wouldn’t have been the same without him at all. What is there left to say, he’s amazing! Much love…
