An eminent member of the band, Flea apart from Red Hot Chili Peppers has also contributed for bands such as ‘What Is This?’, ‘Fear’ and ‘Jane's Addiction’ as a bassist. He has also performed with rock supergroups like ‘Atoms for Peace’, ‘Antemasque’, ‘Rocket Juice & the Moon’ and so on. His magic as a bassist has been extraordinarily exceptional. Over the years, Flea has improved his bass-playing skills outstandingly. From sticking to the traditional roots to mix-matching the new culture, Flea has brought out something new and fresh in all his works.
