RHCP deny split

Reunions & Splits

Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith has denied that the band are splitting up, even though it would be better for everyone if they did. As previously reported, the band announced that they were taking a year off last year, but have now decided to extend their hiatus by a further six months.

Smith told Q: “We’re not playing right now, but we played a lot before. It was time to take a little break and live your life”.
