Ferrell claimed victory on that occasion, but Red Hot Chili Peppers’ stick wielder Smith wasn’t done with comedian Ferrell, and earlier this year the two announced a charity event where they would go head to head once more.
The charity Quinceanera was held in Los Angeles this weekend, with the fierce rivals joined by some huge celebrities as they captained teams of drummers in a battle of epic proportions. Ferrell brought together Fred Armisen, Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac and the University of Southern California’s marching band. Not to be outdone, Chad Smith assembled the Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins, Tommy Lee from Motley Crue and Stewart Copeland of The Police.
