Rolling Stone: Majdnem kész az új Red Hot Chili Peppers album!

A Rolling Stone készített egy interjút Chaddel, amiben szóva kerül az új Netflix dokumentumfilm, a Count Me In, az új világkörüli Red Hot Chili Peppers turné, egy kis múltidézés, és még Josh Klinghoffer is.

Emellett külön cikkben foglalkoznak azzal, hogy Chad szerint az új album majdnem kész, és úgy hangzik mint a Red Hot Chili Peppers, de mégis új és különböző.

Chad Smith interjú a Rolling Stone-ban

Chad Smith

A Rolling Stone leült kicsit beszélgetni Chad Smith-tel, természetesen leginkább az új albumról esett szó, de szóba került a turné, az Aeroplane, és még John Frusciante-ról is beszélt kicsit. Felkészülni, lehet jönnek további régi dalok a koncerteken!

Fans were shocked to hear “Aeroplane” earlier this year.

Yeah, we’re doing it. I think we worked up “My Friends” from the bastard album we never played. No one had a real connection to that one. Josh is like, “I don’t care. I like it, man.” And you gotta switch it up. We’re going to play some older ones, stuff off the first album. We’re playing “Nobody’s Weird Like Me” from Mother’s Milk. We’re delving into our back catalog a bit. It’s gonna be tough to figure out which new ones we can do. We can’t do them all. We’ll figure it out and keep ’em rotating.

Do you ever talk to John Frusciante?

I haven’t. Once in a while, he’ll send me a text or an e-mail or something. I know Flea saw him recently and they hung out. But I haven’t had much contact. He’s doing his thing. I love John. He’s one of the most amazing musicians I’ve ever played with. I’m so fortunate he was in our group. But I think he’s happy doing his own thing, what he wants to do, and that’s great. I want him to be happy.

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.
