Flea has squashed rumors that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are ready to call it quits.


Flea has squashed rumors that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are ready to call it quits. The rumors stem from comments made by drummer Chad Smith, who said he still wanted to make records but not tour.

"We were riding in a van after a gig and Flea was like, 'How much longer do you think we should. How do you think we should end this?'", Smith said. "I was, like, 'I don't know!' I want to make records, I still love making records, but the touring part. I don't know if we can continue."

"I don't know if you know it, but that's just silly talk," Flea told TMZ. "We never really look past the immediate future, but we're on tour right now, we're rocking out, we feel in the spirit, letting the music move us. To be honest, since we first started this band 35 years ago, I've never ever known what's next or round the corner or anything. I think the power of the band lies in that - just staying in the moment and the energy that's moving."
