Flea Guests on Bryan Ferry’s Avonmore Album

Byran Ferry’s new album, ‘Avonmore’ is due out next week and features guest appearances from Ferry’s own son, Tara,  as well a number of artists including Johnny Marr, Nile Rodgers, Ronnie Spector, Mark Knopfler and  Flea:


The title track, meanwhile, features an appearance from Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, whom Ferry met in Los Angeles through British artist Damien Hirst.

“When he came to the session he had this great bass guitar that Damien had given him that which was kind of coated with butterflies,” recalled Ferry. “A beautiful instrument and worth millions, I guess. So that’s what he played. He’s a very good player, lots of energy and we got on very well. He plays the bass sort of hundreds of notes a second, very fast. He’s like a virtuoso bass player.”

About Squitherwitch

I've been a RHCP fan ever since I heard Under The Bridge way back in the mists of time. I brought BSSM and then their other albums but RHCP were just another band I listened to (I was a massive GNR fan at the time) but that changed once I heard Californication! I've been involved with the online RHCP scene since 2006, getting more heavily involved as time passed, and eventually the time was right to set up my own website dedicated to the band and thus, TheChiliSource was born. Since then I've also set up AnthonyKiedis.net along with various Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr pages connected to my websites and RHCP.
