Red Hot Chili Peppers Bassist Flea Calls Nick Cave "The Greatest Living Songwriter"
In a new interview with The Guardian, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea called Nick Cave the "greatest living songwriter."
Speaking on the band's inspirations, Flea said: "Creativity waxes and wanes. We're very lucky. We've made bunches of fucking money. We could be sat on the beach eating burritos, but even when we're pissed off with each other we sit in a room and work. Igor Stravinsky sat at his piano every fucking day. Some days it was rubbish and his wife was chewing his ear off – but he stuck at it. The same thing goes for Nick Cave, the greatest living songwriter. He goes to work! Every day. And that's what we do."
