Flea was born in Melbourne (Australia) in 1962. In 1967 moved to USA. Since as a child enjoyed music and learned to play instruments, such  as drums and trumpet. His nickname was coined in the Fairfax High School, in Los Angeles, because he used to jump around the stage, during his concerts in the school orchestra.

He's the bassist of the band Red Hot Chilli Peppers, which he found in 1983 with his friend Anthony Kiedis. They had played together before, but got real success as members of the Red Hot, which released many hits and is very popular yet.

In 1985, Flea married Loesha Zeivar. They had a daughter (Clara) in 1988, but divorced in 1990. In 1996 he was considered the bassist of the year, and many people find him the best bassist ever.

Besides his great talent, Flea is remarkable due to his attitude towards his body: he's extremely proud of it, and shows off a lot. Usually appears shirtless in public; in the shows, goes further: enjoys taking with him only his instrument, leaving everything else behind.

In fact, this artist is so special: he's proved that a man doesn't need any piece of clothing to perform before an audience, feeling good and being successful that way.
