New Chad Smith Interview for Sirius XM

Chad Smith was interviewed for the Jim and Sam Show…

Chad forgot to pack a shirt to wear with his suit! I guess there are no shops in NYC?!!! Hehehee And the band give their clothes to Josh to wear!

A funny interview. Jim and Sam interview him about being compared to Will Ferrell, wearing socks (if anyone takes Chad’s suggestion for a Monday evening, no photos please 😛 ) with a brief mention of Chad’s Landmarks upcoming program and Chad cheating in the early days & how he got caught out due to his Blackberry (throw out the printer!).

Mail for Blackie

Anthony’s father, Blackie Dammett, still loves getting mail if people would like to send him something. There’s no need to write (just sign it so people can see who it is from sort of thing) as he only looks at the pictures these days. He especially likes pictures of dogs or wolves. Postcards/cards/photos are the best things to send him. He won’t reply but he really enjoys getting mail and opening it.

You can contact him using this address:

B. Dammett, c/o P. Noble Idema,
PO Box 426,

Flea in Rolling Stone

There’s a brief interview with Flea in Rolling Stone- you can read the whole article HERE

He talks about the need for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music and says that removing music education from schools is,’child abuse.’

During the interview Flea also reveals details of this year’s fundraiser for the SCoM. It will take place on September 9th at the Conservatory itself as the new building gives them enough space. It will also feature an art auction with works by Thomas Houseago, Alison Mosshart, Shepard Fairey, Ed Ruscha and Jonas Wood plus musical performances from Randy Newman, Anderson .Paak and, of course, the Red Hot Chili Peppers:

“We play it almost every year,” Flea says. “This year we’re going to play acoustic and we’re going to be joined by the children’s choir from the school.”
