Flea Interviewed by His Daughter

From 23rd April: Flea was interviewed by his daughter, Sunny, during a pop-up musical event for The Thacher School. You can watch the interview HERE

It’s hard to hear the actual questions, but it seems he’s talking about his favourite part of music making process or being in the band at 38:08-39:18

Around 39:32 he mentions the band again. He says they’ve been a band for nearly 40 years now, but laughs and says people “keep quitting and leaving” so that they “always have to kinda reinvent and it makes it different every time”.

Then at 47:08 until 48:52 he talks about how he got the nickname Flea and explains Anthony most likely gave it to him although he’s not totally sure because some of his other friends also tried to take the credit for it.

He talks about the band again around 57:58 until about 1:00:48.

About a minute after that, they perform Mellowship Slinky. There are a few other mentions e.g. Hillel teaching him to play bass.

Many thanks to Sister Witch for the link and all the details.

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.
