Chickenfoot and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith seems to have checked out one of Van Halen's two Madison Square Garden shows in New York City last week, and as you can see from this photo, he was welcomed with open arms by the Van Halen clan.
The battle rages on! Last month we asked you to compare the new singles from Van Halen and their former bandmates in Chickenfoot, now we're taking the fight to the full-length album format. Which of their new records do you think is better -- 'III' or 'A Different Kind of Truth?'
Chickenfoot has announced a 20-date 2012 U.S. tour in support of their recent album 'III.' The trek, dubbed the "Different Devil Tour 2012," will kick off May 4 in Lake Tahoe, Nev. and wind up June 10 in Los Angeles, Calif.
Once again, the hard rock world will spend Memorial Day Weekend converging on Pryor, Okla. for the seventh annual Rocklahoma Festival. Earlier today, AEG Live, the promoters of the festival, announced the lineup for the three-day event. As usual, this year's roster brings together many top present and classic hard rock and metal acts from May 25-27.
With Chickenfoot in the midst of a brief overseas tour, the members of the band have been hitting the promotional trail, doing rounds of interviews in support of their latest release, 'Chickenfoot III.' And you know what that means: plenty of questions about the new Van Halen record. Chickenfoot singer (and ex-VH vocalist) Sammy Hagar has never been shy about expressing his opinions when it comes to his former bandmates, and he didn't pull any punches when the subject came up again during a recent interview with Radio Metal.
Outspoken Chickenfoot frontman Sammy Hagar has a few steadfast stances that he will never budge on. One is that Chickenfoot will never play any Van Halen or Hagar solo tracks live. Another is that air will eventually destroy us all.
Chickenfoot and Van Halen have released new singles within twenty-four hours of each other. Whether this happened on purpose or by coincidence, it's going to be nearly impossible to avoid comparing the tracks, so let's get right to it, shall we?
Chickenfoot's new single 'Different Devil' shows the band confidently and successfully leaving riff-rock behind (at least temporarily) for a textured, rootsy song about making long-term relationships work.
