The primate is famous for having learned sign language
Koko the gorilla has played bass with Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Flea.
The primate is famous for having learned sign language and being able to understand some English.
The Chilis bassist was given the opportunity to meet Koko recently and took along one of his bass guitars to show her. She responded by plucking the strings. “That’s good Koko,” Flea told her. “She gets it.”
“This is just the greatest thing that could ever happen,” the bassist said of the experience. “This is the day that I will never forget in my life”.
It added there would be “future collaborations” between the pair. Watch footage of their meeting below.
