That Time Flea Needed A Bathroom… STAT!

The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame bassist is just like us!

After all, who among us hasn’t found themself in sudden and urgent need of a bathroom on at least one occasion? My personal favorite such story happened when I was out on a boat in the middle of a lake. It hurts just remembering.

As for Flea, his quick trip to Target for some personal grooming items was rudely interrupted.

More rock star glamour: walked to Target to get nail clippers and nose hair trimmer. Employees were right on me asking for selfies and telling me they love me. Two minutes later I get hit with a major urge to take a shit. They tell me bathroom is downstairs, I go there but ten people in line, I’m about to soil my trousers. I go to employees and plead, please can I use employees bathroom they say no employees only. I run across the street to some cafe and ask to use bathroom (on the way there a guy waiting outside tells me I’m an asshole for not stopping to take a selfie with him) the cafe lady threatens to call security on me for politely asking for bathroom. I made it by the skin of my teeth to a restaurant a few blocks away. Back to hotel to practice trumpet.

Such an epic story can only be followed up with brilliant replies.

Some punk rock royalty weighs in*.

Brett Gurewitz founded Epitaph Records and plays guitar in Bad Religion, in case you didn’t know.

And finally, this reply king.
