Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea Tributes David Bowie With Tattoo

(Radio.com) Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers received a tattoo today immortalizing the late David Bowie, "his favorite rocker of all time." The 53 year-old bassist posted a video revealing his freshly-inked tattoo while listening to Hunky Dory, Bowie's fourth album.

Accompanying the video were lyrics from "Changes," one of the artist's most memorable tunes; "And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds."

Thursday, a day prior to the release of ★, Bowie's first album in a decade, Flea let his fans know just how eager he was to feast his ears on new music from the legend. Then, this morning with the revelation that his idol had passed, Flea posted a series of heart felt Tweets discussing the loss he felt as well as gratitude.
