He also uses his Instagram account to share photos from his daily life, and pay tribute to the artists who have inspired him throughout his life.
Recently, Flea reacted to the statements of Dr. Anthony Fauci who thinks the openers shouldn’t be allowed when the live performances begin to be carried out once again. In his tweet, Flea reminded the ‘transcendently good performance‘ of Nirvana when they were opening for L7 back i 1990.
Furthermore, a fan responded to Flea’s post by mentioning the time when Red Hot Chili Peppers opened for The Rolling Stones at Rose Bowl in 1994 as a part of The Rolling Stones’ ‘Voodoo Lounge Tour.’ The fan stated that it was a pretty good opener as well, however, seemingly, Flea had a whole different memory of the show.
In his response to the fan’s tweet, Flea revealed that he actually had surgery on his sinuses before the show and apparently it caused a river of blood flowed from his nose throughout the show. Flea amazed his fans and followers one more time with his rarely known story, which he personally described as ‘strange.’
