Default Re: Chad Smith

His studio work is very impressive. Good groove player, very locked in with Flea's licks. His snare work on the song "Californication" is very tasty, and I can never listen to "Breaking the girl" only once.

I was somewhat disappointed with a live performance I saw a few years ago, though. Sound was very bad, which may not have been their fault. But worst, their playin' wasn't very tight. I've seen other good comments elsewhere about their shows, it may only have been a bad night. I kept wondering however, how big a factor is pro-tool on their recordings.
