Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani, and Chad Smith to Debut as Chickenfoot

The "supergroup" known as Chickenfoot -- comprised of ex-Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist Joe Satriani -- have announced plans to release their first album.

The self-described "accidental" collaboration occurred as a result of jam sessions at Hagar's Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Their self-titled debut will drop June 5, and comes complete with a "heat sensitive sleeve" which will reveal the cover artwork via touch.

true, but thats why i like stariani better then most of the other guitar virtuosos. he usually works on making an interesting song instead of just showing how good he is. so i really see him having no trouble fitting in

^ Exactly what I was thinking. No offense to satch (he's one of my favourite if not THE favourite guitarist of mine) I'm sort of expecting more of the same.

grim, Agreed 100%. Satriani's brilliant, he's got it. Technical AND musical player unlike so many others. I just don't see him as much of a Riff-er, so let's see what type of music they'll be doing. I'm interested in any way!

Call me intrigued. This should be some good "Have a beer and throw a BBQ" music. I look forward to hearing this during the summer while in the back yard with a sixer of Stone Ale, a thick doobie, and some ribs and/or a cheeseburger. \m/

Oh yeah, this collaboration does sound interesting indeed..!! Ive been a Hagar fan since the Montrose days... Still trying to figure out why he wasted so much time with the Halen brothers..??

godlike: I think his time with VH was to keep him on the pulse and in the mix. It also probably went a good ways to payin some bills.;-)
