Changing title of article[edit]

It's curious that the title of this article isn't the name by which Balzary is far better known, i.e., Flea. Since the naming conventions of Wikiquote as well as Wikipedia should give preference to Flea, I suggest making the change to Flea (musician), matching the Wikipedia title, with redirects for Michael Balzary and for Flea. - InvisibleSun 07:04, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Flea now redirects to Fleas, with a hatnote. Cheers! BD2412 T 16:22, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

song lyrics appropriate?[edit]

Would it be appropriate to include some song lyrics written by Flea (like in Transcending) within the page? Emesee 06:06, 31 July 2008 (UTC)


  • It's the same band that we had before with John, but obviously we've grown as people and musicians, and especially when we write music the way we do, which is an unstructured thing that relies on emotion and intuition and spirit. ... With John, that's what we're doing, is trying to channel the energy that's all around us. The energy that's around us now is different from the energy that was around us seven years ago.
  • The majority of young men I know are led around by their penises. I was.
  • There are more interesting things happening musically outside of rock. When I listen to rock bands, I think most of them suck.
  • Yeah, I've got a lot of tattoos. See this one that says "Papaya"? I actually got that one done at the beach while I was eating papaya.
  • I really like Blueberries, I eat 'em every morning.
  • I want to tell you something and it's the most important thing I've ever thought of, but I can't remember it so better luck next time.
