Chad Smith turned 61 on Tuesday (October 25), and to celebrate the occasion his Red Hot Chili Peppers bandmate Flea shared a hilarious photo of the two of them in front of the Sphinx in Egypt.

"How many rhythms we hit together Chad Gaylord Smith???" he captioned the picture on Instagram. "How many times we lean behind the beat with deep fatback, how many times we push forward with the feral violence banging ahead of the beat, how many zillions of times we sit right in the center like the sphinx behind us??? My partner in the elastic groove I love you happy birthday."

RHCP also celebrated his birthday with a funny picture showcasing the Michigan native's feeling about Ohio State. "Happy Birthday Chad . We ❤️ u with all our hearts," the band captioned the post.

Speaking of birthdays, Flea turned 60 just last week. Tom Morello commemorated the milestone with a touching message.

"Happy 60th birthday @flea333!" the Rage Against The Machine guitarist wrote alongside a picture of Flea. "This dude is not only a tremendous bass player and someone who completely redefined the instrument (AND a talented multi-instrumentalist) but he has always shown up and showed out whenever I asked him to play a charity show. From rocking 'Where The Streets Have No Name' with Brad Wilk, Serj Tankian, Maynard Keenan & myself to playing 'The Peanuts Christmas Theme' on trumpet, to holding down a great set of RATM covers at Radio Free LA, he is a total BEAST of a player and a big hearted human. Happy bday legend/friend!"
