With an air of anticipation and a lively exchange with the hosts, Smith tuned into the initial, tranquil verses of the unknown track. The song in question? Thirty Seconds to Mars’ renowned hit, “The Kill”. With the first beats of the robust chorus, Smith seamlessly delved into a rhythmic mastery, intuitively aligning his drumming prowess with the unfolding melody.
His performance was nothing short of spectacular, each beat resonating with an almost instinctive anticipation of the song’s progression. Following this impromptu performance, an astonished Smith queried, “What the fuck was that? Is that like My Chemical Romance or something?” Upon the host’s inquiry about his familiarity with the track, Smith, still seemingly in the dark, candidly responded, “It’s some kind of emo thing”.
This intriguing episode underscored Chad Smith’s innate musical intuition and adaptability, proving yet again that true talent can indeed rise to unexpected challenges.
In a recent interaction, when informed that the band in question was Thirty Seconds to Mars, Chad Smith, the notable drummer for Red Hot Chili Peppers (RHCP), promptly responded, “Ahhh! Jared’s band. Jared Leto. His brother [Shannon] is the drummer”.
The drummer’s musical prowess garnered effusive praise on YouTube for his spectacular performance. One admirer was compelled to write, “I was sitting in disbelief through the entire video. He literally played some parts perfectly to the note without even hearing them prior to it. What an amazing showcase of a truly genius musician”.
Meanwhile, fans in the Big Apple are buzzing with anticipation, as the Red Hot Chili Peppers are scheduled to grace the stage at the Global Citizen concert in New York City’s iconic Central Park this Saturday, September 23rd – weather willing. Subsequent performances are slated in Hershey, Pennsylvania, and Bridgeport, Connecticut. Moreover, the band is poised to launch a Latin American tour, commencing on October 31st in San José, Costa Rica. Tickets for these eagerly awaited concerts are currently accessible.
