I liked it. Thanks a lot for posting it. I think that it's nice when members of rock groups play the National Anthem publicly. It shows the youth of this country that it's cool to be a patriot. Even jazzing it up is fine with me. If Bach could improvise, so can Flea. On a related subject, a few years ago, there was a movement to change the National Anthem to America The Beautiful thanks to Ray Charles. I'm in favor of this. It, in my opinion, is a superior song.

Flea was supposed to have been a really good trumpet player in high school. Looks like he still has it, too.
Mouthpiece du jour: Bach 1.5C, Bach 10.5C
Nice - stirring stuff, even from a foreigner like me - and there's a lesson - I was right about posture.
I like how as soon as he's done, he switches from the perfect posture to jumping around

WHAT?!? FLEA PLAYS TRUMPET??? I like his bass already, never knew he played trumpet too!
I didn't want to get that ring around my lips from practicing the trumpet, because I thought the girls wouldn't like me. So I never practiced.
