After the much anticipated drum battle between Will Ferrell and Chad Smith, the world was left wondering what could possibly top it! Their next doppelgänger target: Lars Uruich!
“Lars gets pissed because he gets mistaken for both me and Chad Smith,” Ferrell told Spin recently. “He can settle that score now, too.” Smith added, “There it is. The gauntlet is down.”
In the spirit of good natured ribbing for the upcoming Chad Smith/Will Ferrell/Lars Ulrich drum off, Chad popped off a little trash talk on Twitter.
It seems one dedicated Metallica fan took it personally:
So naturally, Mr. Smith retweeted it to his 323k followers.
Chad Smith – 1, Internet troll – 0.
Feuding celebrities settle it tonight on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon!
Last week, we posted an article discussing how Will Ferrell finally admitted to being Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. You can check out Ferrell’s instagram confession as well as Smith’s response challenging the comedian to a drum battle.
Now it seems the two are going to duke it out on a drum kit for charity! No word on when it’s shaking down, but we’ll bring you the scoop when we know!
I’ve always been suspicious, but Will Ferrell has finally confirmed that he is, in fact, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, Chad Smith.
I KNEW IT!!!
If you blinked, you may have missed the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing in the 2014 Super Bowl Halftime show with Bruno Mars. They certainly gave a crazy (and topless) performance, but if you thought it sounded too good, you may have been on to something. Turns out, the boys were playing along to a track! Dun-dun-dunnnnnnnnn.
Amid all the controversy, however, Flea has come out to explain things and basically says it’s just business.
P.S. They are auctioning off this gently used kit for charity!
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith launched his own podcast on May 13 through Music Radar called “In Conversation with Chad Smith”. The series bills itself as a non-traditional interview format offering insight into the personal and professional lives of musicians. Smith’s guest for the first installment was RUSH guitarist Alex Lifeson, whom he sat down with in Los Angeles a few days before RUSH was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last month.
