Chickenfoot’s self-titled debut is a hard rock album that sets the standard for rock music. “The album is an 11-song slab of raging rock,” says writer Joe Bosso of Guitar World magazine. Chickenfoot is produced by Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones) and mixed by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica). The band’s first single, “Oh Yeah,” has been embraced by radio. It is the #1 single on the classic rock charts and the #1 most added single in the mainstream rock charts. The #7 most added single on the active rock charts and the #5 most added on the rock charts which are a combination of active and mainstream rock panels. Keep an eye out for FMQB Productions’ radio special, Inside Chickenfoot, which will air on radio stations nationwide on June 5th -14th.
