    Default Flea talking about Van Halen on the B.S. Report

    I listen to alot of sports podcasts and sports radio. I download the B.S Report with Bill Simmons and he interviewed Flea. Flea discussed Van Halen for a little while and had a great Van Halen story.

    http://espn.go.com/espnradio/grantla...yer?id=7454906

    It's at the 34:48 minute.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Would like to hear Flea's story, but it does not appear to be at the mark you indicated. Tried skimming through the audio and still unable to find it. Could it be on a different podcast?

    The podcast with Flea was a 2 parter. The VH part was in part 2 and starts at 34:48 and Flea states he likes that they reunited and only liked the Dave era. He mentions that "it can't be as great" without Michael and it can't be as mighty without him.

    here's a link

    I'm gonna edit the first post as well so there's no confusion

    Somebody should tell the RHCP to pipe in Anthony Kiedis vocals. Two of the three times I saw them he was singing in the key of B Quiet.

    Well give credit to Nuno Bettencourt. I went to a guitar clinic during Pornograffiti and somebody asked him about Vernon Reid of Living Color. He said he can play but solos in the key of B Quiet. Everybody laughed.
