According to The Pulse Of Radio, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith says he's ready for a second drum-off with his lookalike, actor Will Ferrell, after the latter won their first round in a controversial decision on "The Tonight Show" earlier this year. Smith wrote online, "Will Ferrell claims he's coming to Seattle on September 19th. I'll bet he pops off about his alleged 'Drum Off' victory. I just might have to be there to call him out on it and settle the score once and for all. The only way you will know for sure is if you are actually there to see it with your own two eyes."
Ferrell is scheduled to head to Seattle on September 19 for a charity event titled "Approximately 90 Minutes With Will Ferrell and Some Other People…"
The event will raise funds for Cancer For College, the same organization Ferrell championed during the first "drum-off."
The actor has yet to respond to Smith's new challenge.
The pair staged their first drum battle back in May, showing up on "The Tonight Show" in matching black leather jackets, KISS T-shirts, sneakers and blue baseball caps worn backwards.
They sat down with host Jimmy Fallon to discuss the history of their "feud" — with each speaking as the other person.
The pair then launched a "traditional drum-off," with the intensity and complexity of the solos increasing with each successive round. Ferrell was assisted by Fallon's band leader and "ghost drummer" Questlove of THE ROOTS.
Smith has claimed that he's been mistaken for Ferrell for years, with Ferrell acknowledging the resemblance in a recent Reddit AMA session. The two escalated their "feud" into the drum-off challenge.
