Scar tissue guitar chords
The opening shot is of John Frusciante driving down a strip of desert highway, a metaphor for Frusciante’s return to the band (he does not drive in real life). But the four of them are battered, beaten and bandaged. They are traveling in a rusty wreck and playing broken instruments on the comeback trail. The video ends after an emotional thirty second Frusciante guitar solo at the moment of sunset, with John tossing the broken guitar from the car. The car Frusciante drove for the video was a 1967 Pontiac Catalina convertible. A very similar concept was considered, then scrapped, for the earlier “Soul to Squeeze” video. Prior to the video shoot, Kiedis had his hair cut and bleached his brown hair to platinum blond. It was filmed in California’s Mojave Desert.
