Goodbye and Thank you to Dave Rat!


An end of a RHCP era. Dave Rat took the sound helm for the good ship CP last night for the final time. He began in February 1991 and so many of us have benefited from his expertise at the shows we’ve attended.

We wish him all of the best in his new life and hope he enjoys his time at home and not having to drag himself off on tour buses! Thanks for everything Dave! We appreciate it all (and what the rest of the crew, who frequently go unsung, do).

About Squitherwitch

I've been a RHCP fan ever since I heard Under The Bridge way back in the mists of time. I brought BSSM and then their other albums but RHCP were just another band I listened to (I was a massive GNR fan at the time) but that changed once I heard Californication! I've been involved with the online RHCP scene since 2006, getting more heavily involved as time passed, and eventually the time was right to set up my own website dedicated to the band and thus, TheChiliSource was born. Since then I've also set up along with various Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr pages connected to my websites and RHCP.

  1. Really Sad news. A master in his area. I’ve enjoyed 3 concerts with this guy behind the audio responsability and it was a key feature in the show. Still, I guess he did enough money to retire young and with tons of experience. See ya Dave and really thanks for all =)
