Flea falls victim to Malibu fire

    The Thanksgiving weekend in the greater Los Angeles area didn’t end without a little natural disaster drama, as yet another wildfire flared up in recently-scorched Malibu. [more:]Red Hot Chili Pepper’s bassist Flea (real name Michael Balzary) was one of many who lost property to the blaze. According to Flea, his house in Corral Canyon “burned to a crisp.” Sure, the location of the fire in Malibu means these aren’t exactly destitute people losing what little they have (it appears this wasn’t Flea’s main residence). But for anyone, losing a domicile has to be a traumatic experience.
