Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Dave Navarro wrote on Instagram, “Crazy how fast things change in our society. Sometimes I think we are not progressing or moving forward, but then I recently saw this photo and remembered the controversy it caused and how upset people were by it.
Somehow, today I think that people are so much more opened up about who others are, at the very least not be shocked and or cause that much judgement. Nobody would really care. So we are getting better I feel. Whenever I think things are stagnant I think about this jump from an artistic expression to the culture that we have now.”

Flea explains why he is the bassist
In his latest Instagram video, a shirtless, Flea sang Styx’s “Come Sail Away” in a nasally tone while finishing the last bites of food on his plate. Though the clip is meant to be funny (he captioned it “Thank you, thank you”), a fellow musician called him out for having real talent.
“See, I know your playing around, but the pitch is good!!” Jewel commented on the post. “You can sing!”

Red Hot Chilli Peppers are currently on their first tour with Frusciante in 15 years. In a recent interview with Consequence, Flea recalled the emotional conversation he had with Frusciante that was the catalyst for his return to the band.
The former bandmates were having dinner with their significant others, and during a moment alone Flea let his feelings be known. “I was just like, ‘Dude, just from my heart, I f**king miss playing with you,’” he divulged, revealing that tears began to fill his eyes after the words left his mouth.
“I hadn’t said that to him, because I wanted to respect what he would want to do. He was very respectful about what we were doing, even though I imagined it wasn’t always easy for him.” But Frusciante had been feeling the same way, and his eyes began welling up with tears, too. “He responded to me saying, ‘I really miss playing with you too,’” Flea said.
