Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith set a date for a solo album that will be in the shops to buy in the US in September 15th.
Smith has settled on the name, “Chad Smiths bombastic meatbats; Meet the meatbats”. Chad explains to the world that he is heavily influenced by all the now solid, veteran drummers that poured out of England during the 60’s and 70’s including Ian Pace of Deep Purple, Ginger Baker and Led Zeppelins John Bonham.
Other Chad Smith related projects include collaborations with Joe Stariani, Sammy Hagar and Micheal Anthony under the name Chickenfoot that came out July this year and topped billboards in America. No album release dates have been announced for bombastic meatbats in the UK.
