    For Record Store Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer and drummer Chad Smith released a 7-inch single containing a pair of T. Rex covers in “Jeepster” and “Monolith”. The duo also staged a special Record Store Day performance at Fingerprints Music in Long Beach, California.

    There, they played a brief set of T. Rex covers with assistance from Jane’s Addiction’s Eric Avery and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready. Watch fan-shot footage below (via reddit user wesleyredhot).
