There’s something about the rawness of the live thing, there’s no rhythm guitars behind the solo, nothing other than what you hear the people playing at that moment. It’s exciting, it’s about the performance.
I'm a little more of a lead instrument in the Meatbats.

Comments on: "Chad Smith Quotes: I'm a little more of a lead instrument in the Meatbats."
The Chili Peppers do a lot of improvising, but it’s within the framework of song structures. The Meatbats is from a purely instrumental standpoint. But when you hear the term ‘instrumental music’ you think it’s real serious stuff and everybody’s playing a million notes and it’s about playing fast. That’s not what we do.
I just played at a club in L.A. called the Baked Potato. It fits like 90 people. It’s like playing somewhere in a basement in, like, Indiana or somewhere where all your friends show up. It’s really fun and there’s a very different energy to that than to play to 50,000 at a Tokyo baseball stadium.
