FLEA ON RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS FANS REQUESTING A PHOTO, “IT DESTROYS THE CONVERSATION”

Twitter response from Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea to a video of him and Anthony Kiedis chatting with fans during a tour. He stated that requesting photographs kills the atmosphere.  Recently, RHCP released their most recent album, ‘Unlimited Love.’ They intended to promote their album by touring the United Kingdom and Europe. Despite having to reschedule their Glasgow performance due to Flea’s medical emergency, the band has been on the road meeting and performing for fans.  When a video of him and Anthony Kiedis chatting with their fans was released, some fans claimed they did not have the same positive interaction. Flea responded to the tweets by stating that they had a cordial conversation with their fans who did not request any photos.

He added that the photographs resembled a transaction rather than a human interaction. Another fan tweeted that the majority of people desire photos with their heroes. Flea replied that he had never requested a photograph from anyone.  Flea’s response to a fan’s claim that they had a cordial encounter:  “Because you all produced a kind and gentle light, and you did not request a photograph. We are always eager to converse; requesting a photograph destroys the mood immediately.”  The bassist’s response to a tweet about photo requests from fans: “There is no problem with it. However, this disrupts actual conversation. It is an exchange.”  When asked if he would like photos with his heroes, Flea replied:  “I have never in my life asked anyone to take a photo with me.”  Following are Flea’s tweets.
