Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante hated recording the band's latest album STADIUM ARCADIUM. The BY THE WAY axeman admits he did not enjoy the recording experience of their ninth album. Frusciante says, "It wasn't a happy experience - I went through a lot of weird phases and did a lot of worrying. "Mixing the album was a drag because it's not a very creative process. But now we're going into a freer period of time. I can meditate and practice more now."
