First, Happy B Day to Flea. Best know as bassist for Red Hot Chili Peppers. In 1962 Flea is born Michael Peter Balzary in Melbourne, Australia. His nickname (originally “Mike B the Flea”) comes from his manic energy, as he is always jumping around.
Flea has been in a few movies.
Remember this one? I get why they went with Huey Lewis and the News but it would have been quite cool if RHCP was playing in the car instead…
And one can’t forget this cameo.
then in 1991
Red Hot Chili Peppers kick off their Blood Sugar Sex Magik tour (I really need to write up BSSM for a 91 is 25) with a show in Madison, Wisconsin. Their opening acts are Smashing Pumpkins and a new band called Pearl Jam.
I’m sure other events happened to the band on this date though out the years but these are the two moments I’m aware of…and that are interesting to music fans.
