Rolling Stone: Chad Smith válaszol

Chad Smith

A minap lehetett a Rolling Stone magazin twitterén keresztül Chadnek feltenni kérdéseket, amelyeket ő meg is válaszolt. Természetesen szóba került az új lemez is, de még mindig nem derült ki az új producer, csupán annyit tudhattunk meg, hogy haladnak a felvételek, és egészen új irányba indult az együttes. Ezen felül beszél a zokniról, kedvenc dobosokról, a Chickenfootról, és

How’s the new album shaping up?

The new album is shaping up good, man. We’ve got lots of songs, and we’re working with an unnamed producer who is really challenging us to find new ways to come up with new music. We’ve done the “guys get in the room and jam out songs, everybody playing together all at once” thing. And we wrote a bunch of songs that way. And we’re now going to try another method that will be really challenging for us and will bring new, exciting results for the band. We’ve written and recorded in a way that we’ve never done before, so the record is going great. We all have high hopes that it’s going to take off and we’re going to do something very different and unique for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

As far as percussion goes, I foresee Mauro Refosco, the percussionist that we had record with us on the last record and tour with us, coming in and being a part of this record as well. I would think that he would add some nice, interesting percussive elements. But, as far as what I’m doing, I’m just playing my same old beat that I’ve been doing for 25 years, faster and slower.
