A Kick I Need
Written May 22, 2010
A discovery of decades in the making: a collection of beauty waiting for me, produced by a talent I did not know. Fell in love watching your performance, even in a recorded, detached format. Passion, passion, you’ve lived so much. Though you strum so brilliantly, your greatness extends beyond guitar. One listen: my breath is not conserved. “I’d a close call with a glitch in time”— although perhaps you intend differently, I, too, I, too… so words resonate with me. A single song is all I need to come together, but I’d bet they’d all cleanly change my life. If only I’d the time to soak up your generosity. I loved how you shined with your friends, and I’ve no doubt you’ll do as you’ve before: your hands’ work thrills my soul and lungs. Is it too much to say that I want a—I want a moment to fill my heart with yours, Frusciante: to me, a Pepper forever, but more importantly, you’re a talent so outstanding, so clever.
