Flea fell in love with funk after his 1st funk album, and during that time he started to play bass. The 1st real band Flea was in was called Anthym, created by Jack Irons and Hillel Slovak. Then Anthony formed a band..Tony Flow and the Majestic Masters of Mayhem. They renamed the band a few times, then the final decision of the band name was chosen by Flea, 'The Red Hot Chili Peppers'. He thought it would better describe their style of music.
Flea got married in 1985 to a woman named Loesha. He has her name tattoed on his chest, close to his heart. Loesha gave birth to their daughter Clara, in 1987. But soon after, Flea's and Loesha's marriage didn't last unfortunately.
Flea has appeared as the bass player in a few albums of Jane's Addiction (which Dave Navarro was in too). He played bass for an Alanis Morrisette song aswell(she's a big Flea fan). Also there was a rumour going around that during that "time of nothing"(what flea use to call it) when Dave Navarro quit the band, he was going to do a solo album.
Flea appeared in many movies, I personally see him as a very good actor! Some of the movies are: Liar's Poker, The Chase(with Anthony), Son In Law, Fear, Psycho, Just Your Luck, My Own Private Idaho, Less Than Zero, The Big Lebowski. He plays the lead role in Liar's Poker (well done Flea!).
He won the award for 'bassist of the year' in 1996, and appeared in many magazines.
