This is just ADORABLE.
Flea visited Koko at the Gorilla Foundation in California in August this year.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist has been a fan of Koko’s since the ’80s, when he first read the book KoKo’s Kitten.
Knowing that Koko is fluent in sign language, can understand nearly 2,000 words of spoken English, and is a rare primate that keeps pets, Flea was enchanted and hoped he’d get to meet her and play for her some day.
Well, that dream came true and Flea documented his journey on social media: “This is just the greatest thing that could ever happen,” he said. “This is the day that I will never forget in my life.”
While Flea was visiting, he strummed a few iconic notes on the bass. Koko then grabbed the guitar and gave it a go.
“You play the bass so well, KoKo,” Flea said; it looks like he has a new prodigy under his wing!
