Red Hot Chili Peppers: Flea’s Benefit & Book

Red Hot Chili Peppers set featuring mostly deep cuts and an acoustic set by Eddie Vedder highlighted the annual benefit concert for Flea’s Silverlake Conservatory of Music in L.A. on Saturday. Vedder kicked his off with a cover of Tom Petty’s “Wildflowers.” (Friday was the 25th anniversary of the Petty solo album that shares its title.) He later joined the Chili Peppers for the finale of “Purple Rain” by Prince and The Jimi Hendrix Experience arrangement of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower.” The entire show has been posted on YouTube.

Flea’s long-awaited memoir “Acid For the Children,” in which he writes about how he fell in love with music and his relationship with frontman Anthony Kiedis, finally comes out tomorrow.
