Loppe reveals why he doesn’t like fans asking for pictures

Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea revealed why he doesn’t like fans asking him for pictures.

He explained his stance on the situation in a series of tweets after a fan known as Luke posted a short video, taken from a distance, of a conversation he and some friends had with Flea and singer Anthony Kiedis.

“Thank you (and AK) for being so kind and genuine while meeting us,” Luke wrote. “You are both such rays of sunshine; you didn’t have to stop and chat but you did and I hope you know that you have truly impacted our lives. we love you and AK with all our hearts!”

The comment led to other fans telling Luke that it was rare for Kiedis to stop for a conversation, although the other band members were known to do so. “Wow, that makes meeting him and Flea that much more special,” he replied. “Maybe he just felt comfortable at that moment; none of my friends or I asked for a photo or autograph or anything – we were just talking, so maybe it had to do with his interaction with us.”

Flea tweeted: “It’s because you all generated a friendly and gentle light and you didn’t ask for a picture. We’re always down to talk and chat; asking for a picture ruins it instantly.” Another fan then asked what was wrong with people asking for pictures. “There’s nothing wrong with that,” the bassist said. “But that ruins having an actual conversation. It’s a transaction.”

Another follower argued: “Posing for a quick photo shouldn’t be a chore. For fans, meeting you is such a memorable moment that they want to capture it and cherish it forever. I’m pretty sure you have wanted pictures with your heroes? But Flea replied, “I’ve never asked anyone to take a picture with me once in my life.”
