Red Hot Chili Peppers’ official Instagram account unearthed Flea’s unseen photo that he’s playing the guitar on the stage that reveals that he is a huge Jimi Hendrix fan. As you can easily see in the photo, he has a large portrait of legendary Hendrix on his arm.
Co-founder of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Flea studied classic guitar players at an early age, and it is not a secret that the musicians like Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, and Jimmy Page have had a deep influence on Flea since his early years.
However, his new Instagram picture is evidence showing that Hendrix has a special place among all of the others.
Flea has made a rare interview in 2012 and talked about the details of his Jimi Hendrix tattoo. Here is what he said earlier:
“It was 1981 and everyone was talking about this great tattoo artist in town. I was probably smoking a joint and said ‘I want a Hendrix tattoo!’
I remember afterward my mom or my stepdad said to me, ‘do you know the psychological implications of tattoos as your life goes on?”
