Digivegas 153 - Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats

Bombastic, funky, sexy and loud, Chad Smith (drummer of Red Hot Chili Peppers & Chickenfoot) has a new band! Together with guitar star Jeff Kollman, multi-faceted keyboardist Ed Roth, and Motor City bass ace Kevin Chown. they comprise what is easily one of the most interesting and unpredictable instrumental bands to come along in years. Their sound fusies together styles as diverse as classic rock, old school funk, punk, and 70’s R&B.

I was able to get them together for a conference call and talk about the formation of the band, their shared philosophies on music, and recording of the debut CD, Meet The Meatbats.
