Formed by the all-star rock team of Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith, Chickenfoot trade off the members’ long careers, whether it’s the interplay between former Van Halen cohorts Hagar and Anthony or the stinging whip guitar god Satriani lays on top of the solid rhythm section anchored by Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Smith. The band has released two albums so far, with its self-titled debut climbing all the way to No. 4 on the chart in 2009. In addition to the two studio albums in their discography, Chickenfoot released a live album, ‘LV,’ in 2012.
A drum clinic in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, featuring Chad Smith has turned into a international incident when he engaged in a serious breach of local protocol. A new video shows the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chickenfoot drummer pretending to wipe his behind with a soccer jersey.
Recording the new Chickenfoot album is on Joe Satriani's calendar. The guitarist has just finished a solo European tour, but he's also been working on new music for the Sammy Hagar-fronted group. 'Chickenfoot III' was released in September 2011.
Chickenfoot fans will be able to celebrate the band's entire output with a very special box set early next year. The group have announced the 'I + III + LV' collection, which will encompass both of their first two albums, plus the limited-edition live album they put out.
Chickenfoot are getting set to re-release their self-titled 2009 debut album in October, featuring four live bonus tracks. But fans won't have to wait that long for a taste; you can hear the live version of 'Lighten Up' right here, thanks to our exclusive preview.
