Chad Smith, drummer of Red Hot Chili Peppers and sometime Will Ferrell impersonator, is a gem. This was the first time I got to sit down with him and I was loaded with questions but he got the first one in. From there I dug right in. We got to talk about his earliest Red Hot Chili Peppers memories (back in 1988!) and the infamous "sock" era. He told me about his memories of playing Lollapalooza when it was a tour back in 1992 too. Then we moved into the present-the album The Getaway and just how stressful it is when your producer says "I like that but come up with something better."Finally----The Future! Chad has plans for a new album next year?
