Flea, of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, is shocked -- shocked! -- that someone out there will profit off the image of a dead rock god. Ahem. Let me summon some outrage. On the plus side, it appears that the new, Jimi Hendrix "Liquid Experience" energy drinks will be shaped like small lava lamps.
See Flea? As your last two albums and this beverage prove, resurrecting the ashes of a great career for profit is never a style faux-pas.
