Flea and Josh talk about the making of “Monarchy of Roses.”
Klinghoffer, who sang all the back-up vocals on the whole record amusingly described the creative process behind the creation of “Monarchy of Roses”:
“Crouched on our knees in Flea’s basement. He started [mouths guitar riff] and I just started doing those wacky metal-y chords.”
“We were taking hikes up Los Feliz by Griffith Park, talking about how excited we would be if we saw a band start [mouths same guitar riff] and just break out into the biggest disco party you could imagine. “
