I dug up these "dictaphone" recordings from like 1994/95 for some benefit at Moguls in Hollywood, CA. This may have been John Frusciante's first performance after exit the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Flea played solo acoustic as well as Frusciante. From what I recall Flea even played the song off the Basketball Diaries soundtrack. Ah, "I've Been Down" was performed, had to look that one up. Wow, not sure if I still have the micro cassette for that or if I already had transferred that eons ago. Dave Navarro played with the Campfire Girls that evening for that event only.
John looked haggard and disheveled. He looked like he aged 40 years older when really he was in his early 20s. I also clearly remembered that he sported some snazzy/nice black and white dress shoes that looked like they were dated from the 40s or 50s. His teeth were gone because of the drugs, he definitely did not have the build you would see him from pictures like him in Mother's Milk.
