Will Ferrell’s ‘Best Night of Your Life’ Featuring Chad and Josh

Last night, Will Ferrell’s ‘Best Night In Your Life’ benefit for the ‘Cancer For College’ charity took place at The Greek Theater in LA. It was mostly a night of comedy but there was also a star-studded band providing a musical spot and it featured RHCP’s very own Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer. The set list comprised of two halves with Chris Martin leading the first half and Brad Paisley the second. Josh Klinghoffer also covered a song himself, a cover of Purple Rain.

NOTE: Sorry, I am got going to download and copy (without credit) personal stories from Instagram as some other fan pages do as I assume personal stories are well, personal and I’m currently waiting to see if I get permission to use a friend’s photos who was at the event but I will link to public posts as being public implies it’s OK (will always link to the original and then the poster has the option of changing settings if they wish).

Here are a few things from Instagram (there are a lot more in personal stories if you search for relevant tags). Will update when appropriate.

Chad Smith on The Art of Drumming

RHCP’s Chad Smith, featured briefly on episode 1 ‘The Art of Drumming’ on Britain’s Sky Arts channel last night. He featured for a second or two in the introduction but there were two longer clips. Sorry rubbish quality as recorded off my TV using my phone as I have no idea how else to copy something from the TiVo box but it will give the idea. The program is actually a history of drumming and drumbeats, interviewing the people responsible for the breakthroughs, with other drummers commenting. They went through the 50s, 60s, and ended with reggae/Bob Marley in last night’s show.

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!).
