Chili Pepper Chad denies peeing on Foo Fighters drummer's stage gear

Chad Smith contacts fellow drummer Taylor Hawkins after Blink-182's Travis Barker recalled infamous story in recent interview

Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith denies that he once urinated on the fan belonging to Foo Fighters sticksman Taylor Hawkins.

Smith says he contacted the drummer after Blink-182's Travis Barker recently told his version of the story in an interview with KROQ.

Barker asked his bandmate Mark Hoppus: "Do you remember when we were in Australia? Chad Smith would pee in Taylor Hawkins’ fan. It’s the worst practical joke ever. It was so funny, but it was so wrong.”

But Smith tells Loudwire: "I wrote to Taylor and said, ‘I know I’ve done some really fucked up things, but did I ever pee in your fan in Australia?’ He said, ‘Absolutely not. I would’ve remembered that.’

"I said, 'I didn't think so.' Travis was mistaken, he must have been confused with somebody else."
