It will be available as download (name your price) or a high-end vinyl package that comes with an autograph and a used bass string from Flea himself. Proceeds will go to the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. The Helen Burns EP should arrive in a in the next two days. "I recorded most of the EP when we finished our tour for Stadium Arcadium". It's not RHCP music or even close to it. It is a trippy freakout," Flea said.
