Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith has told SiriusXM that the writing sessions for the band’s new album were cut short late last year due to the Woolsey Fire. The blaze that broke out in November destroyed more than 1,500 Californian homes and other buildings from Ventura County to Malibu and killed four people. To help raise funds for the Woolsey Fire victims, the Chili Peppers performed this past Sunday (January 13th) at a Los Angeles benefit event dubbed “Malibu Love Sesh” at the Hollywood Palladium, along with Beck and St. Vincent.
