A Interview with Chad Smith (via MusicRadar)

Chad Smith sat down with Rich Chamberlain of musicradar.com and opened up about some of his biggest musical influences.  Included in the list is Black Sabbath, Rush, Jimi Hendrix, the Monkees, Wu-Tang Clan, and Earth, Wind, and Fire.  Didn’t expect the rocker to be a Monkees fan?  Here’s what he has to say about their track “I Wanna Be Free”:
