Chad Smith Disgusted By RHCP’s Music Being Used As Torture



‘Red Hot Chili Peppers’ star Chad Smith is highly disgusted by U.S. authorities for reportedly using their music to torment detainees at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.

As published by Al Jazeera’s editors, prisoner Abu Zubaydah has been forced to listen to one of their songs repeatedly for long periods of time, on high volume, as part of a torture plan.

The drummer reveals he had no idea federal official have been using their music for these purposes. He also says he’s rather appalled by the idea.

He thinks their music can’t torment a soul. He think it’s rather positive and should not be used in this practice.

He told, “I’ve heard that they use more… like, hard rock, metal… (but not Red Hot Chili Peppers songs).”

“Our music’s positive man, it’s supposed to make people feel good and that’s… it’s very upsetting to me, I don’t like that at all. It’s bulls**t.”

“Maybe some people think our music’s annoying, I don’t care, but you know… (they) shouldn’t do that. They shouldn’t be doing any of that s**t (torture).”

He is not the only musician to raise the voice against this kind of band’s music use.

Before him, heavy metal stars Metallica also had their objections to the same practice of using music to torment prisoners at Guantanamo.
