Keanu Reeves Received A Serious Bass Lesson From RHCP's Flea While On Set
Keanu Reeves is well known for his acting, but many people are unaware that he once played bass in a band named Dogstar.
As a result, Reeves was featured in a new video titled "Don't Quit Your Day Dream" for Fender's YouTube channel.
During it, he talked about how Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers gave him some practicing pointers.
"I remember one time I was doing a film, and Flea was in it, or I was in a film with Flea," Reeves was quoted as saying.
"And I remember there was a house, and there [were] amps and instruments and stuff like that."
"And I was like, 'Hey, Flea, can you give me a lesson?'" he said. "And he said, 'Sure, man!'" And he went, [bass solo]. 'Alright, so?' I thought.
'Just feel it, man,' he said. Just have fun.' And I said, 'Yeah.'"
Reeves and Flea first starred together in the 1991 film My Own Private Idaho. Dogstar was formed the same year, and the band lasted until 2002.
