Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea Dances On Dugout At Dodgers Game

Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea celebrated his birthday early last night at the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. New York Mets NLDS Game 5 playoff game at Dodger Stadium by dancing on top of the dugout. Flea’s dancing unfortunately couldn’t help the Dodgers overcome the Mets, as the final score was 3-2 Mets in the deciding game of the series.

Flea tweeted, “Well that was a depressing end but thanks for the season Dodgers I love you always.” Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder’s beloved Chicago Cubs will play the New York Mets in the NLCS.

Recently, the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed a charity show for the San Diego Foundation at Belly Up Tavern in San Diego. It became their 2015 full band live debut and it looks like it won’t be their last. Flea recently posted on Instagram more new about future tour dates: ‘A concert, fine art auction, and dinner this Saturday to raise funds for the Silverlake conservatory of music. The Rhcp is gonna do an acoustic set too. It is always a beautiful nightl when we have these fundraisers and so many great kids get to give their talents wings. I am so grateful to john legend for playing and equally so to the great kamasi Washington. There are still tickets available I know we are asking a lot of money for them but it’s for the kids not for us. We are a non profit school we are doing everything we can to help we care so much. There will be great art there by Thomas Houseago, Richard prince, Damien Hirst, jeff koons, urs fischer, gus van sant and Dana Louise Kirkpatrick. And more art that I forget about because I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed. A magic night is in store.’

Tom Morello is a long time Chicago Cubs fan. He even wrote an article for Rolling Stone in 2014 detailing what the Cubs needed to do to win a world series. Below is an excerpt:

he question we have to ask ourselves (ownership, fans, players) is this: does it MATTER if the Cubs win the World Series? Peace in the Middle East matters. Curing disease matters. Stopping global warming matters. But does it really MATTER whether or not or the little Midwestern team dressed in blue wins a World Series in our lifetime? I think it does. And not merely out of some tribal affiliation to the place I grew up. I truly believe that if this seemingly unredeemable team can make it to the Promised Land then, really, ANYTHING is possible.

“But how can I, how can WE, make it happen? The previous six points are a guide, but what if nothing changes? Are we looking at another 106 years of agony? What leverage do we as fans really have?

It’s the elephant in the room of all Cubs discussion, so let’s deal with it head on. Baseball is a business. Sure, we fans are wistful dreamers who fantasize about glory on the diamond, but to the people who hold the purse strings, the Cubs win the economic World Series every year. It’s a smashingly profitable franchise because of OUR continued support in the face of a century of sorrow. We fill the stands. We buy the merchandise. We drink the beer. Whether the team wins or loses, whether the fans boo or cheer, there’s only one sound that echoes at the end of the day: KA-CHING!

That is unless we boycott.

I propose that unless this plan is adopted by Cub’s ownership, we let our voices be heard and next year, we skip Opening Day. Imagine that. Opening Day at Wrigley Field and an empty stadium. Now you have their attention. Maybe we boycott the first home game of each month? Maybe “No Merch Monday’s?” I can see team accountants rushing to their calculators now! Scouts scanning the free-agent wires in earnest! Of course we should continue enjoying all Wrigley has to offer the rest of the time, but we will no longer be the passive partner in this abusive relationship. We have needs too, ya know? But we also have power and we won’t be silent anymore. Why? Because we love this team. Because we love Chicago. Because we deserve a World Series championship. Because it matters.”

Jack White, also a baseball enthusasist, attended a Cubs game with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder last year. See photos below of the pair at the game with Cubs President Theo Epstein.
