Last week Blink-182‘s Travis Barker shared a story about how Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Chad Smith once peed on Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins but apparently it’s not true.
“Do you remember when we were in Australia?” Barker asked Mark Hoppus during an interview with KROQ, referring to the Big Day Out festival in 2000.
“Chad Smith would pee in Taylor Hawkins’ fan. It’s the worst practical joke ever. It was so funny, but it was so wrong.”
We’re not sure how they would’ve dreamt up such a wild story but Smith has told Loudwire Nights that it’s not true and that’s even after asking Hawkins if he ever did that.
When asked about it he simply replied “no,” before joking, “We do that in private.”
“I wrote Taylor and I said, ‘I know I’ve done some really f’d up things, but did I ever pee in your fan in Australia?’ and he said, ‘Absolutely not. I would’ve remembered that’,” he further elaborated.
Smith is “not into the golden shower thing,” and reckons that Barker got confused with somebody else which seems like a pretty hard thing to do given that Smith and Hawkins are from two of the most iconic rock bands on the planet.
See the interview below and make up your own mind about whether pee-gate did or didn’t happen.
