Hard rockers, retro-geeks, and shred-heads rejoice! A new super-group has formed!
I know, we all thought the days of the super-group had long since died and withered, much like the big-hair and ripped jeans that were so prevalent, as they say, back in the day.
This new musical juggernaut, is made up of some of the most formidable names ever mentioned in the hard rock circles: Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony (both of Van Halen fame), Chad Smith (drums; Red Hot Chili Peppers), and last but certainly not least, guitar-virtuoso and legendary superhero Joe Satriani (aka Satch).
According to lead singer Sammy Hagar, “We’ve written eight, nine songs… When people hear the music, it’s Led Zeppelin. It’s as good as that. I know that’s a mighty bold statement… We could rival Zep!”
Mighty bold, indeed. However with such a powerhouse lineup, anything is possible…even time travel.
Well, maybe not time travel, but rest assured this beast of a band will be marching to the sound of their own drum…and bringing a hoard of guitar-slinging shredders in tow. Keep your eyes open for Chickenfoot’s debut CD in stores (hopefully) this year.
