A few weeks ago, before Blink 182 performed at KROQ’s Weenie Roast, Travis Barker shared a story about the Red Hot Chili Peppers that rock biographies are made. “Do you remember when we were in Australia?” he asked his bandmate, Mark Hoppus. “Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) would pee in Taylor Hawkins’ (Foo Fighters) fan. It’s the worst practical joke ever. It was so funny, but it was so wrong,” Barker recalled.
“I didn’t know that,” Hoppus replied in between laughter, which makes sense, since it never happened. Travis Barker’s story didn’t jog Chad Smith’s memory, so he went straight to the source to set the record straight.
In an interview with Loudwire (video below), Chad said, “I wrote to Taylor and said, ‘I know I’ve done some really f***** up things, but did I ever pee in your fan in Australia?’ He said, ‘Absolutely not. I would’ve remembered that.’
“I said, ‘I didn’t think so.’ Travis was sadly mistaken, somehow he got confused with somebody else, or I don’t know, but, no, not into the ‘golden shower’ thing,” Chad clarified.
