Flea Jams with Nile Rodgers


A  Grammy week event honoring Nile Rodgers was held at the Village Recording Studios in Los Angeles on Tuesday (4th February 2915)  by the Producers & Engineers Wing of the Recording Academy and RHCP’s very own Flea joined in with the performance. The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist jammed on a session that included covers of  Chic’s “Le Freak” &  “Good Times” plus Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family” that also saw Kathy Sledge joining them on stage to provide vocals.

“We’d never played together, I swear to you it’s the truth. We met in Germany… The Chili Peppers were on tour and I was working with the Symphony Orchestra and they played the gig in the joint the night before us and we were playing the next day and I said ‘Flea do you  just wanna come down and jam and he was like, ‘What are we going to play?’ ‘And I was like, I don’t care.’ And he was like, ‘So what if we make mistakes?’ And I was like, ‘Well cool…” Nile Rodgers

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.
