Flea Leaves Fans In Wonder With His Comment About His Picture With Kurt Cobain
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea responded to a fan’s question on Twitter asking about the conversation he had with Nirvana’s late singer Kurt Cobain during their performance at Hollywood Rock Festival in Rio de Janeiro in 1993, yet, his reply made fans even more curious about the context.
As you may know, Nirvana’s iconic frontman Kurt Cobain passed away on April 5, 1994, at the age of 27. The cause of his death was revealed as a self-inflicted gunshot to the head. Even though the young musician attempted suicide several times before, his death came as shock to his friends and fans all around the world.
Recently, a fan on Twitter posted a picture of Cobain with his dear friend and fellow musician Flea and asked the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ icon whether he recalled what he and Kurt were talking about on stage during their performance in 1993 in Rio de Janerio.
As you will see in the post below, the picture of Kurt Cobain and Flea was taken during the fourth year of the Hollywood Rock Festival which featured Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana and Simply Red as headliners. During the Nirvana performance, which is widely known as the worst show of the band, Flea joined the band by playing trumpet instead of bass for Nirvana’s iconic song ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit.’
In his response to the fan’s question, instead of sharing the details of his conversation with the late icon, Flea simply confirmed that he remembered what they were talking about that day. Flea’s response left fans in wonder as they asked him to share further details about the context of their conversation in the comment section of his recent tweet.
Here is what the fan asked about Flea’s conversation with Kurt Cobain:
“Hey Flea, do you remember the conversation you had here with Kurt?”
To which Flea responded:
“Yes, I do.”
