Flea Of Red Hot Chili Peppers Announces New Podcast
Flea, the bassist of Red Hot Chili Peppers, has announced that he is launching a star-studded new podcast, This Little Light.
Buy Red Hot Chili Peppers vinyl and merch at the Dig! store.
The 15-part series will premiere on 30 March, and the initial run of guests includes Rick Rubin, Cynthia Erivo, Thundercat, Patti Smith, and Margo Price. The conversations will largely focus on guests’ discussing their first teachers, early influences, experiences, and how all these lessons shaped their creativity and careers.
A portion of the proceeds from the podcast will go towards the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, a non-profit music school and organisation that Flea founded in 2001.
“I wanted to do This Little Light to benefit my music school, the Silverlake Conservatory of Music,” Flea said in a statement via Rolling Stone. “The idea behind it being music education, falling in love with music and embarking on a musical journey for your life. Everybody’s path is so different, and it’s fascinating to learn how every musician came to music and developed their study of it over time.”
Around the same time This Little Light begins, Flea and the Red Hot Chili Peppers will kick off an expansive world tour in support of their most recent albums, Unlimited Love and Return of the Dream Canteen.
