He seems adamant about it but I guess we'll have to wait and see...

Nooooooooooo! What's he thinking?

However, I think he's had a very mixed and difficult upbringing and he should do what makes him happy. He has after all given us some great performances, despite his brother's mighty shadow.

Crikey    He must really like his music?  I guess he has to do what makes him happy at the end of the day and probably the money he has made from films has given him the freedom to do just that  so fair dues to him ...though like the rest of you I'll miss him in films.....he's a good actor...perhaps its just a temporary move and he will eventually return in time?

It's strange he announced it on his Birthday...almost as if he feels it's time for a change? I think he learned to play guitar for Walk the Line....I hadn't read about him being musical before then, so maybe that made him passionate about music?

Oh really he only learned to play during that film?? I thought he was playing from a child and then just went into acting? God that is a big change for him then   I don't think this will be the last film he'll ever do I reckon he'll be back

Yeah Luc  I'm sure I read that he learned to play guitar for the film.....he did amazingly well   I read too that he's working on an album with Tim Burgess from The Charlatans. Joaquim's a talented guy!

No, I read that the Phoenix children played music from a young age to get money for the family- on street corners etc. I read the biography of River Phoenix after he died and I'm sure that's what they all did... I think the Phoenix parents were members of a cult and brought up their kids very strangely.

Maybe he can play other insruments or his siblings could play guitar? I just had a look on Wikipedia and it says  when he got the Johnny Cash role, he went out and bought a guitar and taught himself to play. It says too he's directed music vdeos!
