    Red Hot Chili Peppers gap-tooted, blue-haired bassist Flea recently told Guitar World that he considered leaving the mega successful band on not one, not two, but on many occasions. The popular bassist said, "I've considered pulling the plug a million times. That's nothing new for me. Things get to be a bummer and I start going, 'Mmm, this is kind of a drag.'"

    Thankfully, Flea never acts on those emotions and never does pull the plug. The RHCP are not the RHCP without Flea.

    The Chili Peppers' latest, I'm With You, is out Aug. 30.

    Are you going to pick up I'm With You?
