-He rode his bike to Flea's house where the band broke the news to him
-The news came as a shock but not a complete surprise, as Flea and John had been jamming in recent months
-He said the decision was “pretty simple” and said there’s “no animosity” between him and the band
-He had started writing songs with the band for the new album, but nothing had been recorded. He assumes everything will be ditched in order to create new music with John.
-He concludes: "After 10 years, two tours, and almost three albums of writing, I’m really proud of what I did with them."
