Not only was Avid rejoicing from the sidelines at the Los Angeles Lakers Fan Weekend, he was actually under the spotlight at the pre-game festival as he performed a bubble of the national anthem, vaguely just before the Lakers Key, on Sunday (April 3) against the Denver Nav- Off-run game.
This isn’t the first time Flea Lakers has performed the song for Hometown fans (more on that later), but it may be the most appreciated. Giving this all a quick read, it seems we are pretty much in agreement. While playing, you can clearly see the word “Go Lakers” scrolling through his arm.
For one shirt, he showed another loyalty, the parliament was proudly displayed in a colorful shirt. Earlier in the week, George Clinton helped unveil the Red Hot Chili Papers Hollywood Walk of Fame during an event, and the band rocked “Give It Away” with the P-Funk musician.
For this performance, it started with just picking up a few base chords lining up the familiar notes of the national anthem, but soon after the performance, he set foot on a fudge paddle and loosened up with some inspired noodles and headbanging. He later tweeted, “I told Karim [Abdul-Jabbar] I will reef the second stanza Charlie Parker (after I set foot on the fudge paddle).
As you can see, Flea was initially praised for this effort.
This effort was certainly well received compared to Kobe Bryant’s performance in his last game as the Los Angeles Lakers in April 2016. Dressed in Lakers gear, Flair’s fingers danced around the fretboard, adding depth and texture to the song, but the performance was somewhat damaged by sound problems. Although Flee seemed happy with his performance, he faced some harsh criticism on social media. Speaking later on with TMZ, he turned it off, saying, “I don’t care, man. I know people who love music like it. I love it. I don’t really care about the little minds that they I like big minds when I get frustrated. “
For Flair, the Lakers game was a busy weekend that included not only the Hollywood Walk of Fame show, but also a late night TV appearance, the release of a new album (Unlimited love Out now) and much more. See his national anthem performance below.
