To Flea. . .Get over it!

BBC - Hendrix energy drink upsets fans
"To see his image and the beautiful feelings it has created in me cheapened by advertising is very disappointing," said Red Hot Chili Peppers star Flea.
I'll agree that it can be disappointing to have the music you know and love corrupted into the fallen art of advertising, but it happens everyday. It's not like it is some great tragedy that requires public lament. And personally it surprises me that Flea was so influenced by Hendrix. I mean really, Jimi Hendrix didn't feel the need to use the same rhyme all the way through every verse of his songs, did he?
