Favorite Flea basslines?

I've never appreciated the bass guitar more with any other band! Flea is Bass God!



Which song or songs does he really shine on?

I think Aeroplane is definitely up there. The bass in that song has a rhythm of its own! It goes to places I've never even imagined a bass could go!

Sir Psycho Sexy (John and Flea are perfect )

He is amazing, but Aeroplane? Maybe I just never noticed because I absolutly loathe that song...

But Flea is the shit, plus he was great in Son-In-Law...
