This week, Flea is the special guest on Mike Watt's "The Watt From Pedro Show"! I'm about halfway through the 3-hour program, and it's kinda blowing my mind. First, it's good fun listening to two of my all-time favorite bassists talk shop (whether about bass or the state of the world), and the show is made even cooler with music from Flea's recent trip to Ethiopia. Plus, Flea talks frankly about the departure of Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante and welcoming new RHCP guitarist Josh Klinghoffer. Check it out! --Brian Fox
