Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea revealed what Radiohead singer Thom Yorke told him about the death of rock on a major touring level in Dave Grohl’s new documentary ‘What Drives Us.’ Radiohead ‘Double Album’ Rumor In 2021 Leaks.
“It’s funny, Thom Yorke brought that point up to me as well. He just said there was so few of us left that can go and play big places all over the world, can fill up arenas and stadiums all over the fucking world.
At a certain point in the late Nineties or something, they put up a big fence or drew a line and made a big wall, and all of us that were on one side of the wall got to do it for the rest of our lives, and no one else came in. And has anybody else come in the last 20 years, a rock band? Is there one? No, right?”
Flea also wrote a sad message on Instagram a few weeks ago, “Thank you for all the joy Shock G. What an inventor you were, what deep funk! No one else bridged the gap from funkateer to hip hop MC like you. So many times I danced to your jams with an unfettered heart. You rocked it hard and it will last forever. Every time we spoke you were interesting, interested, kind and looking forward. I love you.”
