    It was cool to see Flea playing a P on the Daily Show. I think it was last nights (9-25) show, with Atoms for Peace. They did 2 songs. It was also great to hear/see him in a different context, with Thom Yorke.

    He sounds better with a P imo

    I love this particular performance

    That is really good. Notice how Omar is just kinda watching John and Flea, all the while playing like a madman. Love it!

  5. Just saw it on my DVR. Didn't anybody else see Flea used a 4/10 in top of a 1/15? How did that get past the TalkBass members without starting up that whole discussion again? Hahaha. :)

    I saw some footage too from like 2004 with the RHCP where he's playing a J bass and heard he recorded most of Stadium arcadium with one. Never seen him play a P before though. I still wonder what made him drop Musicman in the 90s.

    IIRC he was looking for MM to develop a 'signature' model and to compensate him for said model. MM didn't want to play ball and he went to Modulus instead.
