Flea mentioned in a new interview that his daughter had swiped the first Grammy he won with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and used it as a garden trowel.
The legendary bassist touched on this story when he was asked about the Chili Peppers receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He began, “It’s like a Grammy. Put it this way, I’m grateful to win a Grammy, Grammys are awesome, but after we won our first Grammy, like three years later, my mom said, ‘Michael, where’s your Grammy?’, and I was like, ‘I don’t know, mom, I put it somewhere.'”
Flea continued, “Months after that, my gardener came out of the backyard in the garden and you know how the Grammy looks like an old record player with the horn on it? My daughter had unscrewed it and was using it as a shovel for the garden. It had been out there in the dirt for the whole winter. It had been out in the dirt for the whole winter and stuff.”
Still trying to figure out if this is worse than when Smalls swiped his stepdad’s Babe Ruth baseball, but it only makes you wonder if there are any other funny stories about Grammy Awards like this one.
