Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith jokes about playing Rush's 2112 at Superbowl halftime show
The Red Hot Chili Peppers will be a special guest of Bruno Mars at the halftime show of the Superbowl this coming Sunday at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith was a guest on the Kevin & Bean radio show yesterday morning on KROQ to talk about the upcoming performance. Rumors had been circulating that the band would be covering a Led Zeppelin song after the drummer had cracked a joke to reporters last weekend at the Grammys, but Smith assured everyone in the interview that this was just a rumor. He then jokingly started another rumor involving Rush (thanks Lerxster):
"People in the media are so gullible sometimes," Smith joked. "We will, however, be performing side one of Rush's 2112."
