Flea and Chad Smith are the best rhythm section in Rock&Roll today

And not just because they are anti-semites.

Even if they are...they don't hold a candle in that category in comparison to Professor Griff of Public Enemy...

On a serious "tip"...I agree, partly...live, they aren't all that good, but in the studio, they're pretty dead on...I like Nate Mendel and Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters myself.

Eh? Are they seriously Anti-Semitic? I thought Flea was Jewish, as was Hilel Slovak?

They canceled a show in Tel Aviv during a period of intense violence last summer. If they are anti-Semitic I'd like to see a specific reference to back up your statement. Methinks Mr. Swallow must be messin' with us as he likes to do cause we know the Peppers are all about peace, love & understanding and all that good stuff.

And yes, the best rhythm section in R&R. I just said that to a friend the other day, in fact.

i cant say i remember much of their drumming, but flea's bass playing is HUGE. its awesome.

in terms of funky-ness, yes they have the best rythm section..

but i honestly believe colin and phil from radiohead are the best. just my opinion ofcourse.

they are not the best rhythm section in rock today.

and flea is over-rated big-time.


however, there really aren't that many other musicians around today I would even mention, which is testimony to the piss-poor level of musicianship in rock and roll right now.

shame it is.
