Red Hot Chili Peppers Drummer Makes Children’s Album

Right when you think musical collaborations couldn’t get any weirder, Spinner.com reports that the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith recently teamed up with Dick Van Dyke to help create a children’s album. The album will be titled “Rhythm Train” and is about a train traveling around the world. “I may not be playing as hard but I still am trying to be creative,” Smith says. “It’s just trying to make the songs as good as I can.”

Van Dyke, now 84 years old, raps about making music while Smith provides the rhythm.  “Rap has a great beat,” he says. “But I swear to God, I have never been able to understand one word. I don’t know what they’re saying.”
