The StoneColdBush Live Recording Guide (LRG) is a database where we list existing Red Hot Chili Peppers/John Frusciante live recordings and additional information. Our aim is to gather as much info as possible about individual recordings, we hope this guide becomes the best resource on the internet for everybody who collects live recordings by RHCP/JF.
Please take a few minutes to read through this short orientation, it will help you understand the purpose and the usage of this guide.
- The Live Recording Guide is not a tourography, only dates that were recorded will be listed.
- We list any recordings we know/heard about, Audio and Video, unofficial and official releases. This doesn't mean we have them!
Following should help you understand how to browse through the Live Recording Guide:
The naviagtion filter
This filter allows you to select everthing you want to be displayed. You can search for recordings that have a certain song, that were recorded in a certain city/country, you can look up how many recordings exist on DVD and so on. The filter is pretty self-explanatory if you play around with it for a couple of minutes.
The matches for the criteria you search are being displayed below the filter in a table. You can also reset the filter again, it will then show all entries in the guide, until you chose what to be displayed next.
