When we talk about Flea beeing overrated, here arises a question: overrated by whom? I'm sure that people over here don't overrate him, nor do general funk listeners. At the other hand, if we take some 15-y.o fanboys screaming "OMFG Flea is teh best f***ing bass player in the universe haha pwnt", then well, he's surely overrated by them. When I think about it, whom can they compare Flea with? Mark Hoppus? It's not surprising then, because IMO Flea is probably the most talented musician in the MTV crap-soup, the most talented bassist for sure.
