To have withdrawn, not only from the music and entertainment industry but from society altogether, in such an all-encompassing manner in which John Frusciante did in the five years up to 1997 and to have survived and re-emerged as the guitarist in one of the biggest rock bands in the world is something of a minor miracle.
Those are bottles of human waste sporadically abandoned around the once grandiose mansion and Frusciante is the skeletal figure barely conscious on the threadbare settee.
Watch and be thankful every time you see Frusciante on stage and full of life.
