does anyone else agree with me that flea from the red hot chilli peppers is an amazing bassist??
he does slap rather well, and is quite an agile little man
Well - if you use the search function or just look back over the last few pages on this forum, you will see that there have been literally hundreds of posts/threads about this!
yeah and unless we all start talking about drums and dog leash's we will almost never have said somthing new, but what with there being new memebrs all the time their may be a new and valuable contribution to be made by anyone,
OK, revelation. I've got something new to say about flea:
Flea doesn't actually play bass for the peppers.
No, John Frusciante actually plays all the instruments on studio recordings. When they 'play' live he triggers bass/vocal/drum samples with a complex set of foot pedals and voice activated commands.
How do I know this?
Well, if you watch Frusciante closely, when they play live, you'll see him talking to himself and stamping on the ground. Admittedly, he may look like some sort of mad filthy tramp who's only meal is cold turkey, but actually you're witnessing a living breathing God (isn't every guitarist?) in the process of working miracles.
As with any band, I'm sure you'll agree the true genius is the guitarist. Flea is effectivley nothing more than a puppet.
hmmmmmm, then how did they play before they had john frusciante?
did dave navarro do the same?
Yeah, he's amazing. Can we let it go now?
u don't have to post on here if u don't want to...
Thanks for the tip.
hehe, your welcome.
Horrible live tone. Overdone thread. Use search engine. Closed.
