Flea being Flea. Woodstock 1999
Happy Birthday, Hillel Slovak! We love and miss you.
Red Hot Chili Peppers → Lyrics
Knock Me Down was the first single off Mother’s Milk, and it actually got on the radio. Every now and then Lindy would tell us that a station had added the song, but that didn’t really compute. A few months later, on a weekend tour to Washington, D.C., Flea and John and I flagged down a cab in the middle of the nation’s capital. We got in and the driver looked at us and said, “Hey, aren’t you those guys? What is it, ‘Beat Me Up,’ ‘Slap Me Around,’ ‘Kick My Ass’? I love that song. You’re those guys, right?” That was the first time somebody other than the musical underground had arbitrarily become aware of us. — Anthony Kiedis
