"It's always been easy for me to pooh-pooh these awards — the [Rock] Hall of Fame, too. But I inducted Metallica a couple of years ago, and it was really a beautiful thing to see as all these people were being inducted. It made me love it."

- Flea (from latimes.com)

"I called my dad. I told him that he couldn't say anything because it hadn't been publicly announced yet. I guess it's just something that you want to share with the people that you're closest to, like family and longtime friends. My dad cried."

- Anthony Kiedis on first learning the Red Hot Chili Peppers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (rollingstone.com)

"We are getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I am not usually one to get to excited about awards or accolades, but about this one I am very excited indeed. I am truly grateful for this honor. To our fans, who have supported us for all these years, given us purpose, and wildly energized us night after night, thank you."
