The Silverlake Conservatory of Music held its annual fundraiser on Saturday, November 2nd and featured performances by the Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, the latter on acoustic guitar as well as ukulele.
Before taking the stage, Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis reflected on the moment when Flea first fell in love with music. “Flea’s life was changed by enrolling in a music class in junior high,” he told Variety. “He had an orchestra teacher who put him on a path. He was, like, ‘If you study music and practice every day, your life will change’ — and Flea’s life changed. When he grew up, he got to play music for a living and he was successful.”
