More will be revealed my friend
If you had to go back to sharing a room with someone else in the band, who would it be?John:
It would be Flea, probably. It’s very difficult to imagine it because you get used to stuff like that when you’re touring as a club band, but when we started touring for ‘BloodSugarSexMagik’, we started getting out own rooms and at that point it instantly became unimaginable to share with anybody else.
I’ve shared a room with everyone in this band, but I think at this point Flea and I are most bio-rhythmically in sync with our sleeping patterns. It doesn’t sound pleasant, but it would be the lesser of all the evils. Definitely not Chad Smith. Love the man, don’t want to room with him.
Chad, I always used to room with Chad. One night - and this really gave me an insight into Chad’s mind - he was sleeping, I looked over at him. I thought he was awake but he was dreaming with his eyes open, looking up at the ceiling shouting, ‘You motherf**ker! I can see you up there. I’ll get you, you motherf**ker! Come on!’. He told me afterwards in his dream he was seeing some 12-legged spider monster. In my dream, if there’s some 12-legged spider monster thing there, I’m running away, but Chad wanted it.

Hi! I already made a post with that quote, it’s one of my favorites. Chad is the best!
We took one look at Chad when he walked into the audition and we just thought, ‘Nah, he ain’t right! He’s too tall and too goofy!’ He wasn’t really familiar with the band. Then he sat down behind the drums and he was like 40 gorillas attacking the kit! We just started laughing hysterically. We had to ponder the situation for a couple of days to see whether we could live with this guy. Whether we could marry this guy and spend the rest of our lives with him – ‘cos that’s what it’s like in the Red Hots, a four-man marriage, a brotherhood. He was just too good to let go.

Happy 44th birthday John! May your work continue to inspire and influence us. We love you!
