Quote of the Day: Flea on the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Super Bowl Show

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Gossip, Performances, Rock,

Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea and Anthony Kiedis

"We decided that, with Anthony singing live, that we could still bring the spirit and freedom of what we do into the performance, and of course we played every note in the recording specially for the gig... Could we have plugged them in and avoided bumming people out who have expressed disappointment that the instrumental track was pre recorded? Of course easily we could have and this would be a non-issue. We thought it better to not pretend."

- Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, addressing viewers' realization that their instruments weren't plugged in while playing the Super Bowl halftime show.
