I don‘t think there was a RHCP show in the time frame when De-Loused was recorded, at least not one Jimmy Page would have gone to. Also, John talks about past instances of them recording this way in the letter, probably referring to De-Loused/ORL&JF/AMD etc. Frances was in the making during the 2004 Hyde Park shows that were attended by many celebrities. The first two L’via solos have additional guitar tracks underneath them. Maybe they were originally planned to be of equal volume. Also, Frances is the record they tried to get their heroes on (and succeeded with Larry Harlow).
