satchChickenfoot? Chickenfoot! Yes, the band Chickenfoot featuring Sammy Hagar, Chad Smith, Michael Anthony and Joe Satriani, is about to release its first CD called, “Chickenfoot”.

It was one year ago this last February that the band first got together in Vegas for a little jam in front of a few thousand people, and decided to make a go of it. I’m glad they did.

Thinking back, it seemed kind of crazy for Joe Satriani to join a new band just when he was about to release “Professor Satchifunkilus…” and launch its world tour.

According to Satch – “All the hard work paid off though. Our “Live in Paris” DVD from that tour will be released this year in all its psychedelic glory, and the “Chickenfoot” CD should be out in about a month, or, two. As a new band, Chickenfoot will do a few CD release party gigs in May to kick things off, then it’s off to Europe for a few weeks of Summer festivals.

We are looking towards a headlining tour in the USA this fall. I’m so excited about bringing our new band and music to the stage. The energy this unit puts out is incredible, absolutely amazing. Chickenfoot Rocks!”
