Flea Responds To Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Fans Criticism About His Dislike Of Fan Photos
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea recently replied to the criticism conveyed from the fans about his not liking the fans’ request for taking photos.
The band released its twelfth album, ‘Unlimited Love’ on April 1, 2022. The album generally received positive reviews and debuted at number 1 in over ten countries, including the United States. They also announced that the upcoming record ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’ will come out on October 14, 2022.
Later, RHCP hit the road for The Global Stadium Tour on June 4 to support the released and coming albums. During this tour, the members have had memorable moments with the fans after five years since their latest time. However, in the previous days, when a fan shared a video on Twitter of them having a conversation with Flea and Anthony Kiedis, some fans declared that their interaction was not that positive.
After this tweet, Flea indicated there was a friendly chat with those fans because they did not ask for any photos. According to him, asking for photos ruins the conversations, and it felt more like a ‘transaction.’ According to him, it destroys the entire conversation when the fans request a photo instead of keeping chatting.
Recently, another fan criticized Flea’s opinion, pointing out his definition of fans asking for a photo as a ‘transaction.’ They reacted that the bassist does not say anything about fans buying albums, tickets, and merch but calls fans’ requests for photos ‘transactions.’ Then, the bassist responded to this comment by expressing his respect and thankfulness to all RHCP fans.
Flea wrote the following:
“With all due respect, I honor all chili peppers fans with respect and gratitude. I am love.”
