MUST SEE VIDEO: Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) Interviews Carlos Santana!

The Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer chats with the guitar legend...

September 25, 2013,

When Chad Smith walked into the San Jose Repertory Theater in San Jose, California, last month to participate in the 2013 DRUM! Night, he was looking forward to entertaining the sold-out crowd with a blistering display of his celebrated funk-rock chops, as well as checking out performances by other world-class drummers such as Cindy Blackman Santana, Jason Bittner and the Street Drum Corps.

He got something else, too: a private sit-down interview with one of his biggest musical heroes, none other than guitar legend Carlos Santana.

The Grammy Award-winning, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame-inducted (and future Kennedy Center honoree) musician was on hand to witness his wife's guest spot at DRUM! Night, and after rehearsals for the event, he sat down with Chad for a special video edition of In Conversation to talk about the art of live performances and how drums and drummers affect his approach to music. "God is a drummer," Carlos told Chad (words which, no doubt, further endear him to Mrs. Santana). "I owe everything to drummers."
