The latest trend in Rock N’ Roll is to get a tattoo of your recently deceased music idol. Dave Grohl went out and got an “Ace of Spades” tattoo to honor Lemmy & Flea took to his official Instagram to show off his newest tattoo dedicated to Bowie.

Flea also paid tribute to The Who’s bass player John Entwistle by sporting a “Skeleton Suit” when the Chili Peppers played Slaine Castle in Ireland on August 23, 2003.
Here’s a photo of Flea sporting his Los Angeles Lakers purple hair running his first Los Angeles Marathon on March 20, 2011. Flea finished the rain soaked 26.2 mile race in 03:52:00 (three hours and fifty three minutes).
The Red Hot Chili Peppers released the album “Freaky Styley” in 1985. The back cover included some tongue-in-cheek aliases for the band members, Hillel Slovak as “Homesqueeze”, Anthony Kiedis as “Homes”, Cliff Martinez as “Homey” and Flea as “Homeboy”.
Anthony Kiedis was born in Michigan and Flea was born in Australia but as young men they both moved to the west coast and now represent California and Los Angeles to the fullest. I decided to compile a list of songs by the Red Hot Chili Peppers that mention “The Great State” of California…
RHCP also paid homage to The Who in this photo of them wearing football helmets that was included in the booklet for “Stadium Arcadium”. The album cover for The Who’s 1974 out-takes album “Odds And Sods” showed the band members wearing football helmets as well.
Flea performed “Smells Like Teen Spirit” live with Nirvana on January 23, 1993 at the Hollywood Rock Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The chance performance took place because the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana were on the same bill for the Hollywood Rock Festival. Instead of playing the bass, Flea played the Trumpet.
In homage to The Beatles, the Red Hot Chili Peppers once wore socks on their cocks while crossing Abbey Road. They also recently played a rooftop concert like The Beatles in filming the video to “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie”. Check out the Red Hot Chili Peppers doing their version of The Beatles “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” album cover in these photos taken in 2002.
Red Hot Chili Peppers just released the video to their new song “The Adventures of Raindance Maggie.” The simple video features the band with new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer playing on the rooftop of a Venice Beach apartment.
The headline pretty much explains this post. First, we have Chad Smith from the Dave Navarro era Red Hot Chili Peppers pulling out his “Ball Sack” during a photoshoot in 1995. Now here is a bonus…Came across this early John Frusciante photo where he too pulls out his “Balls Sack” during a photoshoot…
