Last week, millions of viewers watched in stunned amazement as Chad Smith was robbed of the Golden Cowbell after his drum-off with Will Ferrell on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. Prior to that, he faced an even more formidable opponent in the drumming world: Ginger Baker.

And although he heard for years the stories of Baker's combative approach to interviews, when word came back that the drumming great was amenable to a meeting, Smith grabbed the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
