I'd like to know if you think that Frusciante reached the tone that was in his mind and if the S.A tour's tone was the ultimate tone for him, that matched his expectations. Also, what was your contribution, how did you help Frusciante to achieve it?
Dave Lee: "John always knew in his mind what he wanted tonewise. His original vision was a guitar amp and a bass amp mixed together (split) with the Boss chorus pedal. Up to the last day we worked together (and probably still today), he always referred to the Major as the "bass head". I think it was Rick Rubin that turned him on to the Majors during the Californication sessions."
