    My buddy sent me this link, for some reason... Flea must've been sitting in on one of their rehearsals. Kinda cool - not something you'd see everyday, I guess.

    Here's one for all of you Flea & Trujillo fans out there:

    I just saw it on missionmetallica.com !! I saw a preview, man it was awesome, I wish the audioquality was better though. Looks like Flea was playing an octave higher than trujillo most of the song, but you couldn't hear it because of the previous mentioned sucky audioquality.

    The show last night Flea played Fight Fire With Fire with them. Sadly, you can't hear the bass. It's on Youtube.:bassist::meh:

    Outrageously cool.

    Hopefully there's a recording out there with some bottom end ...

    I would hate someone too if they were a talented musician and actor (who didn't love BTTF II and III?) Flea kicks ass.

    i've come to realize people here are always talking schnit about him....
    reminds me of high school girls making fun of other girls, mainly out of jealousy
    regardless of what you think of his style of music, he's done what we all would like to do: play bass for a living
    it's like people saying justin timberlake or clay aiken suck...you know, i don't like their style of music (as you can tell from my s/n i'm into good ol' rock 'n roll), but i won't say they suck, b/c they don't...
    and even if it's just making a middle class income, or being famous, he's done it, and alot of you have not
    if you say he's not that good and he's over rated, check out his sessions video, the one that has chad smith on the drums, i guarantee he can out play 99.9999999999% of you
    and yes, that's including me
    easily...so, even if you think rhcp suck, would you be there bassist? hell, i'd be the bassist for the new kids on the block if they reunited and wanted me to play for them...celine dion, any of them...maybe one day i will, and you all can say i suck while you're wife, kids, or friends buy the cd of this "suckie" bassist and help pay my bills so i won't ever have to have a 9 to 5 job that i'll hate, which i'm sure most of you hate yours.

    You can't mention Flea's acting if you don't talk about The Big Lebowski.:D

    Was this an actual Metallica show? If it is, it should be up on livemetallica.com eventually...

    Here's a clip with better audio than the other cell phone vids on youtube . Sadly though you still can't really hear either bass.

    Whoa...stop there. He was in Lebowski?

    That said, I made a joke last week about Flea and the new album
    "Sell your soul to me.
    Now meet our new bassist
    Flea!"
    *Bad slap bass impersonation.*
    And today he found this on the internet.
    I love his work with the Chilis, very talented player.
