The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been on tour all summer, and one of the things Flea likes to do with fans is have them play the famous bass note at the beginning of "Under The Bridge."

"As tradition has it, whenever we play Under The Bridge, I ask someone by the side of the stage to play my entry note into the song,"
Flea wrote. "I turn the volume off, they strike the low e string in a timely manner, then I roll it in nice and smooth. Last night this soulful young man hit it and I could tell he felt the rhythm in his heart. To make matters better, his sister rocked it with great aplomb just a few nights before!"
