Biography

For nearly three decades, bassist Flea provided not only the deep grooves for the iconic alternative act Red Hot Chili Peppers, but also its heart and soul by keeping the act alive throughout its myriad changes in personnel and musical direction. A manic, kinetic presence in the band's live performances and music videos, his speedfreak energy belied a background in jazz and punk rock that informed both the nimbleness and intensity of his playing. His talents helped to elevate the band from offbeat funk-punk act to a genuine rock band, with Grammys and a worshipful fan base laying credence to the title. He also helped to bring the group together when it threatened to break apart on numerous occasions due to drug addiction, physical and mental fatigue, and changes in musical tastes. In doing so, he became a respected figure in rock, as well as an in-demand guest player for the likes of Alanis Morrissette, Jane's Addiction, Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, Jewel and countless others. In 2011, Flea and his fellow Chili Peppers were named as 2012 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The designation confirmed what most fans and critics had felt about Flea all along - he was a one-of-a-kind talent.
