"The first day we had to try with Josh we received the news of the death of our dear friend, Brendan Mullen. In his honor we launched into a improvised jam that became Brendan’s Death Song, one of the tracks on I’m With You. We can say without fear of contradiction that I’m With You was born that day, with the arrival of Josh and the first song composed. The magic between us was instantly struck, there was no need to say more, we had the guitarist suitable for us, what was needed for RHCP to start playing with conviction. Part of the credit for this album is just contagious enthusiasm for Josh in addition to his talent." - FleaOnstage Interview December 2011
