Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers played what may have been the world's most expensive bass guitar when he appeared on Bryan Ferry's new album.

Ferry told NME that Flea is good friends with artist Damien Hirst, who had customised a Fender bass guitar for the musician.

"It's covered with butterflies, so it's a kind of an artwork," said Ferry. "It's possibly the most expensive instrument known to man."

The Roxy Music man releases his new solo album Olympia today, but will be back with his old group for a UK tour early next year.

They are to play dates in cities including Newcastle, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham, before ending with a show at the 02 Arena in London on February 7th 2011.

Roxy Music have had a busy 2010, playing gigs in Spain, France, Switzerland and Japan over the course of the year.
