The drum-off between funnyman Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith has been months in the making, and while the copious trash talk between the two has been entertaining to say the least, it’s time to get down to business.
The names of several harder-edged bands have surfaced over the years as having music being used by the CIA to break down terror suspects, but it was a little bit surprising last week when a new report revealed that Red Hot Chili Peppers music was used on loop as a tactic by the CIA.
A new report from Al Jazeera suggests that the CIA once used Chili Peppers to torture prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, and we're not talking the spicy tongue-burning kind. The report states that a U.S. official confirmed that Red Hot Chili Peppers music was used to break prisoners.
The Mars Volta are no more, but we may have the next best thing. The band's frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala, guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and onetime drummer Dave Elitch are teaming with Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea to launch a new group called Antemasque.
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea is writing an official memoir! For 30 years, Flea has manned the low-end for the iconic act, playing on countless classic tracks while redefining what a hard rock bassist can do.
Last week actor Will Ferrell was an Internet sensation with his hilarious claim that he was actually Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, something many have debated over for many years due to their uncanny physical similarities. The actor-comedian made his confession during an infamous Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ (AMA) session resulting in Smith offering up his own video in response, challenging Ferrell to a drum battle.
