Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea says a piece of his personal music history was stolen.
It’s the ‘stuffed animal pants’ he wore in the music video for Young MC’s “Bust A Move”.
Flea recently revealed on Twitter that some time ago, the pants and a leather jacket were stolen out of the trunk of his car.

Flea wrote the bassline to “Bust A Move” and has previously complained that he was paid only $200 and didn’t get a songwriting credit.
