In a brief speech, Kiedis praised his bandmates, saying the Chilis are “much greater than the sum of our parts”.

“To me, this isn’t a story of individuals … something happens when we come together that’s far greater than the individual parts, we’re far greater than the sum of our parts,” he said.

“We were able to find something we love to do and communicate with the whole world.

“We started out playing dive bars down this street and getting a handful of people dancing and alive, but over time we stuck together as a team and as a band and now we can make anyone dance and feel joy. ”
