Been listening to the Chickenfoot album today, realeased last week. They're a 'supergroup' comprising of Sammy Hagar (vocals) and Michael Anthony (bass) of Van Halen, Chad Smith(drums) from the Chili Peppers and Joe Satriani (guitar).
It's actually really good (if you're into 80s rock type stuff). I hadn't head much about the project until this week. Anyone else heard it yet?
Check it out on Spotify:
I am not a fan of the music, but I'm happy for Joe to finally be in a band, Chad to be playing his kind of music finally, and Sammy and Michael to be out of Van Halen. My main problems with the music are that besides just not feeling Sammy's vocals, Joe feels a little out of his element doing hard rock pentatonic stuff. The songs are just party songs to me– I can rock out to it, but it's not going to be stuck in my head the next morning. I'll download the album though, since my judgement is only based on the songs they put on the site and there could be a gem in there...
*crossing fingers for RHCP to reform with Jack Irons while Chad is rocking with Chickenfoot hehe
This is really bad music. I agree they are all very talented at what they do but together it's a train wreck. They all look happy and I'm glad they are having fun but if they weren't all millionaires they wouldn't be able to support these songs with a tour.
satriani is usually sick on the guitar.
just saw a tv spot for them today for the first time..... u
Yeah. This is pretty much some standard flair 80's hair rock. Nothing special here other than the name drops.
For what it is it's exceedingly well done, but there's nothing interesting or culturally relevant about this other than the nostalgia trip. The whole thing sinks to the lowest common denominator of the group - Hagar.
bad font choice killed it at first sight.
Rock and Roll sans passion = Perfect background music at a party for the middle-aged.
saw them on conan's new takeover of the tonight show. it was pretty bad.
really lame attempt at bringing these peoples fans together to buy records.
met my first chickenfoot fan this weekend.
She was chanting CHICKENFOOT CHICKENFOOT CHICKENFOOT until her boyfriend turned his monstertruck stereo up to 11 to play it for all to hear.
She then drank Jim Beam right out of the gallon jug, nearly drowned in an inner-tube, had to be carried back to her campsite by 2 dudes then she fell down a rocky embankment splitting her forehead and cheek open and blacking her eyes requiring an emergency room visit.
Pretty much sums up their fan-base right there.
This is one band where all the members are good but not together. It sounds generic. Satriani is a badass guitar player though.
Sammy Hagar: poor singer, and ignorant motherfucker.
+Michael Anthony: who gives a shit.
+Chad Smith: gosh, a fucking drummer.
+Joe Satriani: I've never been able to listen to that shit.
= This is going to make everyone forget about Ratt.
hey I like Ratt,
In fact I have liked Sammy (with and without VH), Van Halen (with and without David Lee Roth) RHCP (with and without Chad) and well I've listened to Surfing with the Alien a few times back in the day but this Chickenfoot CD makes Ratt look brilliant.
