If you're prepared to put in the practice then it doesn't matter what age you start. The only thing is most teenagers not only have the time but the motivation (mainly to impress girls and stuff like that) to practice all day every day. When you have a full time job it can be a lot harder, but not impossible it you really dedicate yourself to it.

Also it depends what you want to do. If you want to shred then that'll take a bit longer. If you want to become a songwriter it wouldn't take you long to learn all the chords and scales that you need.

Flea only took up bass in high school I believe.

But he had also been playing trumpet for a number of years so that probably helped.
