Chad Smith launches new podcast
Listen here!The Chilli Peppers drummer has launched the first in a series of podcasts which will profile "some of the greatest musicians of all time".
Titled In Conversation, the podcast is presented by MusicRadar.com. "The invisible interview – that’s what I call it," says Smith. "Friends, thoughts, information – why do you do what you do? Admiration, respect, insight and maybe a surprise."
The first guest on the series is Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, who Smith took for dinner at the Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood just before Rush's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
"I’ve been a Rush fan since high school" admits Smith. "Neil [Peart] gets a lot of attention, as he should, but Al is under-appreciated, I think. He is as great a musician as he is to be around. I’m honoured for him to be my first. He was gentle with me!"
