How Rush Influenced Chad Smith

The Rush documentary Time Stand Still, to be premiered on November 3, comes with an exclusive bonus, a 20-minute film called Rush: A Salute to Kings.

From Ultimate Classic Rock: “Directed by Adam Jones, the mini-movie features a bevy of famous Rush supporters — including Kiss’ Gene Simmons, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith — talking about why they’re such big fans”.

Chad Smith’s love of the band goes back to the ‘70s with an eight-track copy of 2112. He calls it “the soundtrack to my sophomore year in high school”. As a teen, the drummer tried to emulate Neil Peart’s drum kit.
