the announcement review

The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea enlisted a few of his friends — from bandmate John Frusciante and Tracy Chapman to jazz great Charlie Haden — to perform at a benefit last week for his Los Angeles music school, the Silver Lake Conservatory of Music. “People are coming out because they’re grateful the school is here,” said Flea. “It’s just a fucking cool night.” The bass player then took the stage with two of the conservatory’s teachers and drummer James Jackson to perform a set of covers by New Orleans funk band the Meters. The theme of the night got many of the performers thinking about their early musical days. “The school resonates with me,” said Chapman. “I’m mostly self-taught, but when I first started I took lessons at a community boy’s club. They would pick me up at my house by bus and take me there. It made a difference in my life.” Chapman played a five-song set that began with “Talking ‘Bout a Revolution” and closed with a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Knocking on Heaven’s Door.” Among those on hand to lend support were Greg Dulli, Perry Farrell and Incubus’ Mike Einziger. After watching some of the students perform, Farrell said he’d be coming back to the school “because I need a cellist.” Dulli said, “I’m probably going to end up taking piano lessons here. I’d like to learn how to play classical piano”…
