Flea Goes Mad In Interview
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea snapped and hurled insults at a journalist during an interview on April 12. The rocker lost his temper when the reporter repeatedly quizzed him about a reported rift with bandmate John Frusciante, reports ContactMusic. Flea writes on his blog, "I was talking to this man and he kept asking me about (a past interview) where I said that there was a lot of tension between John and I on the last record. I answered the questions and tried to explain how sometimes things are hard but then they can get better. But he kept talking about the part that was hard and I thought he didn't care about the part that comes next, the liberation and rebirth that made it better than ever. "I told him that I was getting angry about it, that it was accomplishing nothing. And that is strange because I never get angry in interviews. I get bored sometimes but never angry. Anyways I started getting angry and next thing I know I started yelling and seeing red and I threw my bottle against the wall and hurled insults at him and stormed out of the room. "Then I calmed down and came back and we finished the interview but I was damn angry. "I have never done that before. I think it is partly because I felt like a magazine article that came out recently only concentrated on the negative in the most shallow sensationalist way and that I was misquoted. I snapped and blew up and I am not proud of it."
