Koko knows sign language and enjoys games, but as it turns out, she has an interest in music, as well. She’s even met with a real rockstar! When Flea, long-time bassist for the popular award-winning rock band The Red Hot Chili Peppers, visited with Koko, it looked like he was more in awe of her star power than she was of his. Flea and his band have a lot of fans, but maybe not as many as Koko. Watching him interact with the kind gorilla and his excitement over the meeting is so wonderful to watch.
“This is just the greatest thing that could ever happen. This is the day that I will never forget in my life,” said Flea.
I have to admit that if I had a choice of whether to meet a rock star or Koko the Gorilla, Koko would win, hands-down!
Koko and Flea even had a little bit of a “jam session” when Flea let her handle one of his guitars. With her usual intelligence and curiosity, she examined the instrument and plucked at the strings. Maybe she has a future in music!
