RED GOT CHILLED OUT FECKER!
The Red Rooster had the pleasure of having this man on the show this morning. He didn't have a cigarette poking out of his nostril (although we never asked...hmm) It is the legend that is Chad Smith, skin man with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and a sticks supremo. After the disastrous interview a couple of weeks ago with Jimmy "Fucknut" Flo-Rida, who couldn't even muster up a full sentence this was an absolute pleasure. It was actually difficult to get a word in! This guy has every right to be a prick. 20 years at the top in one of the biggest bands in the world and with enough cash to fill a mattress factory but i suppose if you're cool...you're cool, money and fame don't change that...but if you're a dick it enhances it. So, what i'm saying is Chad Smith is what they call "pure daycent biy" around these parts. If you missed this mornings special then don't miss the FULL UNEDITED and EXPLICIT interview on Transmission from 7pm Friday night.
And the edited version will be on-air again in the Best Of... show on saturday morning between 10am and 12pm.
And if you can't catch either of them check out this fantastic interview with a slightly frazzled Chad talking about his "shaved potatoes" ENJOY:
And the Chillis favourite gig?? Where else but Slane 2003:
Don't miss Chad and his new incarnation as Drummer with supergroup Chickenfoot playing at the Marquee on June 23rd. Keep listening as we will be giving more tickets away on the show. Either way, don your denim and get those air guitars out cos it will be flammable! *RAWK* :-P
