Red Hot Chili Peppers Talk Seeing Dave Navarro Again: ‘It Brought Back Emotions’


Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea discussed Dave Navarro and Jane’s Addiction in a new interview with 101 WKQX at Lollapalooza.

“I was just watching Jane’s 5 minutes ago, having come up with those guys are the same time in the same town, and watching them through the years. I even played with them for awhile, and obviously Dave played in our band for awhile. Seeing them, it really triggers a cavalcade of a emotions and feelings, an old spirit of competition, but more than that, just grateful to see them. It brought back memories of all the time we spent together.”

He added, “Just growing, and kind of being excited by each other at different times. At least I was excited by them, I don’t know if they were by us or not. All bands of the same time, not always, but between certain bands there’s always an unspoken [rivalry].”

Anthony Kiedis also discussed Red Hot Chili Peppers’ final 1997 Fuji Rock show with Dave Navarro in a new Japanese interview.

“I do remember that, it was a super typhoon. We tried to perform as long as we could, and eventually the stage began to collapse.”

He added, “It was dramatic.”
