    In part two of ARTISTdirect.com's exclusive sit down with the Red Hot Chili Peppers'rhythm section, which consists of bassist Flea and drummer Chad Smith, the duo went in depth about the new album I'm With You. Flea explains the meaning behind "Brendan's Death Song," which is about Brendan Mullen, the man who booked some of their first shows. He was a legendary figure on the Los Angeles punk scene. Flea talks about the emotional genesis of the song, which you'll find out about by watching this interview! We're not going to "give it away now," to borrow a lyrical phrase from the RHCP themselves!

    Flea also talks about "Dance, Dance, Dance," which he says is his favorite song on the record.

    There's a lot more discussion about I'm With You, so get watching! We couldn't get enough of the record, so we had to do split the interview into two pieces....
