Chad Smith reveals the secret to Red Hot Chili Peppers’ longevity
Chad Smith recently visited the studio of his Chickenfoot bandmate Sammy Hagar to jam on some new tunes, but before they played music they talked about music, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer revealed something about that band that blew Hagar’s mind. It was noted that it is a collective effort when it comes to the making of the songs.
“I think that’s part of the longevity of our band,” Smith said. When then asked how long he thought RHCP would be able to keep making music, he admitted that there’s not really a timeline. “I don’t know how long we can go,” Smith said. “As long as we keep loving what we’re doing and feel relevant, making new music, everyone is still passionate about being in the band. We’re so f**king fortunate and lucky people still come out and see us. I don’t know why our music connects with people like that, but it’s a real gift and we’re so fortunate and we love it.”
