Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer reveals solo album details
Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith has revealed details of his forthcoming solo album.

The album is titled 'Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats: Meet The Meatbats' and is due out in the US on September 15.

The drummer, who is also a member of Chickenfoot with Sammy Hagar and Joe Satriani, wrote and recorded the solo effort at his Malibu pool house. The album contains 10 instrumental tracks including 'Battle For Ventura Blvd', 'Night Sweats' and 'Need Strange'.

Smith said that his music is inspired by several British rock bands from previous generations. "My influences, through my brother, were so many of the groups that came out of England in the late '60s and early '70s," he said in a statement. "Led Zeppelin's John Bonham, Ginger Baker from Cream, Deep Purple with Ian Paice…those groups were the ones that I really loved."
