Chad Smith + Will Ferrell May Take Their Drum Battle On the Road
If you’re anything like us, you remember Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith and comedian Will Ferrell’s epic drum-off on ‘The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon’ last spring. (If not, you can refresh your memory by watching the clip above.)
Now, according to Smith’s recent interview with Rolling Stone, the two lookalikes may be taking their show on the road.
“I can’t really expound upon details, but we have been talking about doing something next year that will combine music and comedy -- a show,” the Chili Peppers drummer said. “It will benefit the charities we’re into. Plus, I think I need to redeem myself from how I was robbed of the Golden Cowbell.”
“I don’t want to burst any bubbles, but he wasn’t even playing the drums, people,” Smith added. “Yeah, so, it’s not over.”
Smith isn’t opposed to bringing a third kind-of doppelgänger into the mix either -- he has his eyes set on Metallica’s Lars Ulrich.
“We got such a kick out of saying we’d battle Lars, who obviously looks nothing like us -- this small Danish man. We’re like, ‘Yeah, that guy really looks like us,’” he said. “All the Metallica fans were like, ‘Lars will drum circles around you guys.’ And I think Lars’ response was really great. He took it and was really fun about it.”
“I don’t know. We’ll figure it out. We’re open to any and everything and anyone that wants to step forward,” he added.
