"It's a great feeling to think that I can be a friend to so many people through my movies." -River Phoenix.

Flea, bass player for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, was a close friend of River Phoenix. He wrote most of their song 'Transcending' and said, "'s about one of the kindest people I ever met in my life. When I think about River I don't think about his death. I don't get sad about it. I think about how incredibly fortunate I was to be friends with a person who looked inside me and saw things that no one else ever saw before. And that song is a respectfully loving song for him." (Jessica Ransford)
