Chad hints at re­tire­ment

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

Say it ain’t so! Chad Smith has hinted that his days of heavy tour­ing with the Red Hot Chili Pep­pers may be num­bered. Speak­ing to the Ed­die Trunk pod­cast, Chad noted the fact that three-quar­ters of the band is now well into their 50s, and ques­tioned how much longer they could go on trot­ting the globe. He said: “I want to make records, I still love mak­ing records, but the tour­ing part… I don’t know if we can con­tinue.” Chad did, how­ever, add that one op­tion may be to fol­low Me­tal­lica’s route into a scaled-down tour­ing sched­ule of around 50 shows per year.
