Joe Satriani, Chad Smith, Michael Anthony, Sammy Hagar Join Forces For New Group "Chickenfoot"
Four of rock music’s most successful and influential musicians are combining their talents to create the much anticipated rock group Chickenfoot. Guitar hero Joe Satriani, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith, former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, and frontman Sammy Hagar’s new project has found the four working side-by-side for the last few months recording their self-titled debut album, Chickenfoot, which will be released in June, 2009.
Long before these four rock icons came together to form Chickenfoot, they already had filled the pages of rock history with enough individual mind-blowing chapters to boggle the mind of any fan or musician alike. Satriani had his own blazing solo career as a much respected guitar virtuoso; Chad Smith is the drummer of world renowned rock band The Red Hot Chili Peppers; and Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar have been working together since their days as lead bassist and singer, respectively, in Van Halen. These talented individuals were aching to work together in a band that produced rock like they never have before.
The self-titled debut is an 11-track hard rock album that sets a "new standard" for rock music in the new millennium. Produced by Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones) and mixed by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica), the band is not lacking energy or enthusiasm in this project.
