    Default Red Hot Chilli Peppers to reunite?

    Has anyone else seen this? This was posted over at the Allman Brothers website:

    From billboard.com...

    With another Chickenfoot tour and the first release of his instrumental side band Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats looming, the drummer has October circled on his calendar for the Red Hot Chili Peppers' return to active duty.

    "That's the plan," Smith tells Billboard.com, noting that what was announced as a one-year break turned into two for the quartet after touring to support 2005's "Stadium Arcadium." "Everybody was like, 'Y'know, I really like having this time off, not being a Chili Pepper and doing other things...It'll be two years in September, so now we're ready. You can't force people to play when they don't want to play or aren't ready to play or whatever -- not in our band, anyway."

    Smith expects bassist Flea and guitarist John Frusciante may come in with some musical ideas, but the group will mostly likely "do a lot of improvising and jamming and songs will come out of that, too. That's what we usually do. I don't know why it would be different."

    No prospective release date has even been considered yet, and Smith says he and his bandmates also "haven't talked about" who will produce, though he acknowledges with a laugh that Rick Rubin, who's produced the group's last five studio efforts, "always ends up being the guy...But we haven't discussed it."

    The looming Chili Peppers sessions do make Smith "the bad guy" in Chickenfoot, but the other members of the all-star group have assured him they'll continue to work according to his schedule. The quartet, which begins its next tour Aug. 2 in Halifax, has also filmed shows in San Francisco and at this year's Montreux Jazz Festival, and the Aug. 30 show in Atlanta and at least one more will be documented for a possible DVD release.

    Meanwhile, Smith is excited about introducing the world to the Meatbats, a group that formed a few years back as an outgrowth of Smith, guitarist Jeff Kolman and keyboardist Ed Roth's work with Glenn Hughes. They first performed live in 2007 and have continued to work together intermittently.

    "It's all very loose," Smith says. "It's instrumental music -- power, funk, rock music. It's a niche. We're not going for the Mariah Carey crowd or anything. It's just really fun and they're great guys and we just have fun hanging out and playing."

    In addition to debut album, which comes out Sept. 15, the Meatbats have already recorded a second set of songs that Smith predicts will be out in early 2010, along with a live album at the Baked Potato in Los Angeles. "We have three albums in the can and none of them are out yet," Smith says with a laugh. "But we won't wait very long. It's not like we're putting out singles and we have to have some kind of strategy. This is stuff we can put out whenever it feels right."

    I thought it would take a little longer for the Peppers to do something new.
    Good for them.
    Guess we'll see the Other Half and Satriani solo again too.

    Nah, I think it's pretty legit. They all knew of other commitments (and were doing other things) when Chickenfoot formed and put the album together. It wasn't really finished until everyone had time in their schedules to do it.

    Unless (I'd guess) a bunch of other things fall through, I think we're going to have to wait a while for another Chickenfoot album to come together.

    I imagine Sam and Joe both have solo commitments and Chad has both the Meatsticks (or whatever) and Chili Peppers.

    Don't worry. The chili peppers are no longer relevant and I personally think they haven't done anything good since Californication.

    Chickenfoot will end up being Chad's baby because the Chili's won't last beyond this next album. My prediction...I could be wrong but then again...I could be right.

    This is where strange bedfellow's comes into play. Don't be too surprised to see CF and RHCP's on a double bill, both with new albums, in say... oh... Summer 2010.

    Some bands still work for a living. Still create a community environment where shit gets shared, where something fresh and exciting happens.

    I'll wait.

    You not liking them recently does not make them irrelevent. They are far from it.

    Well, all their recent stuff sounds almost exactly the same, so it's not like they've been pushing the envelope.


    But, they're still very relevant. Another release from the Chilis will go multi-platinum pretty quickly if it has another couple of hits on it like the last few did.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    They're not relevant to people who don't listen to 'em.

    Me included. But let Chad do what he needs to do. Play.
