Flea incorporates elements of funk (including slap bass), psychedelic, punk, and hard rock in his style of playing. In 2009, ''Rolling Stone'' readers ranked Flea the second best bassist of all time, behind only John Entwistle. In 2012, he and the other members of Red Hot Chili Peppers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Since 1984, Flea has acted in over 20 films and television series such as ''Suburbia'', ''Back to the Future Part II'' and ''Part III'', ''My Own Private Idaho'', ''The Chase'', ''Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas'', ''Dudes'', ''Son in Law'', ''The Big Lebowski'', ''Low Down'', ''Baby Driver'' and ''Boy Erased'', in addition to voicing the character Donnie Thornberry in ''The Wild Thornberrys'' animated television series and films.

Flea is also the co-founder of Silverlake Conservatory of Music, a non-profit music education organization founded in 2001 for underprivileged children.
