Earlier today, Flea posted a video on his social media outlets of him hanging with the famous Koko the Gorilla, known for her long ventures in human communication. Fluent in sign language, Koko found another way to express herself: bass guitar. In the video, Flea lays down in the back while Koko examines and plucks a little at his bass. Watch it below:

In a recent interview, Flea explained why he fears the NRA more than fundamentalist Muslim terrorist cells like ISIS/ISIL/Da’esh:
“Well, I’m definitely more afraid of the NRA than I am of any Muslim terrorist, that’s for sure,” he says.
“But it’s just too sad to comprehend, really. Like, I think when somebody does something like that, they are so insane and so removed from love and the connection that we all are one. All religions, all people, all races, all ethnicities, we all are one. ‘And I know everyone knows this and you hear or see the hippie bumper sticker on a car, but when you don’t understand that, you really are sick, you know?
It’s a sickness and it’s something that people have a little bit of sometimes and sometimes people have it a lot – to the point they want to kill people. It just fills me with such a great sense of sadness. What can I say? All we can do is try to make good decisions, try to create love in the world. That’s it: that’s all I want to do.”
