Flea pens touching tribute to late Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Jack Sherman

Jack Sherman, who played electric guitar on the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ self-titled debut album, passed away in August at the age of 64. Now the band’s bassist, Flea, has penned a tribute to his former band mate and friend on his Instagram page.

“It has taken me a couple of weeks to process the death of Jack Sherman,” Flea began. “Our relationship was complicated, we stopped playing music together in 1985 and things were often fraught in the rare times we communicated since. I found him to be unreasonable sometimes, and I’m sure I behaved like an obnoxious asshole with him sometimes. This morning, in pondering him, a wave of appreciation washed over me, which is really the only truth of the matter.”
