Watch Chad Smith Play Hendrix's "Fire" with Kansas Pep Band

Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith sat in with the University of Kansas pep band at a recent men's basketball game in Lawrence, KS.

Smith posted video Wednesday to his Facebook page of him jamming to Jimi Hendrix's "Fire" with the pep band's horn section behind him.

By Thursday morning the video had over 2.8 million views and 28,000 shares on Facebook, and it's no mystery why: Smith doesn't hold back at all on the song and completely shreds for about a minute-and-a-half.

Good on the pep band, too, for not getting starstruck by Smith or distracted by his incredible solo!

Watch it in the video above!
