How Flea’s First Grammy Became a Garden Shovel

Be careful leaving your awards around your kids!

In a recent radio interview, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea shared that his daughter had used his first Grammy as a garden shovel. “Grammys are awesome,” he said. “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!” Red Hot Chili Peppers won their first Grammy in 1993 for “Give It Away.”
