“Unbelievable”

We of course mentioned the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith. Well, last month the drummer spoke about the “unbelievable” experience of meeting the late Rolling Stones sticksman Charlie Watts.

Watts passed away last year aged 80.

Revealing that he crossed paths with Watts back in 1994, Chili Peppers’ Smith said, “It was August and there he is in a full suit, standing there at 3 o’clock in the afternoon in the sun looking and watching us soundcheck”.

“I’m like ‘f*****g Charlie Watts is watching me f*****g play. Unbelievable!’”. Find out what else Smith said of Watts via this Report from Nova here.
