Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea experiences emotional flashbacks whenever he visits producer Rick Rubin at his California mansion - because it is where they recorded seminal album BLOOD SUGAR SEX MAGIK. The sentimental rocker is staggered how far the band have come since their 1991 breakthrough release - because they were barely able to make ends meet at the time. He tells MTV, "It's so beautiful to think about our spirit back then, doing that (album), and I get these mini little retrospectives of our life, in a real beautiful way. "It's great, that feeling, because it was really the end of an era when we recorded that album for us. "That was the transition when we went from being a pretty underground band, playing little theatres and stuff and sleeping on people's floors, doing whatever we did to get by, to becoming a mainstream band."
