    Default Photographer Russ Halfin Blogs Of Chickenfoot Photo Session

    Nothing major. Halfin simply describes a session for the band held yesterday.

    February 10

    "Got up at 5am and flew up to San Francisco. I'm doing a shoot with Chickenfoot, the new group with Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani and Chad Smith. It was so early after driving out to Mill Valley, an hour north, it was still only 10am - sunny and freezing. The band arrived eventually with Sammy last at 2pm and he only lives up the street. Shoot quite a lot with solos, group stuff, ads, you name it.

    Heard three tracks which were quite rocking, inculding Avenida Revolution. It was nice seeing Sammy. I first shot him thirty years ago in the same area. Sammy has a Ferarri that is the fastest model made for the road. He took me for a terrifying drive at two hundred miles an hour around the local streets. Sammy can drive - I felt like I was on a mini scalectrix track in a remake of Death Race 2000. I do not like fast cars...

    Finished up shooting Sam and his new toy. In his warehouse were several of them - a car pervert's delight. Said goodbye to Sammy and flew back to Los Angeles early evening.

    Ran into a "Jovial" Billy Gibbons in my hotel lobby who invited Pete and I to his house for enchilladas to finish the evening. After an afternoon of tortillas with Sammy we declined, so Pete interviewed him for a bit then we finished off the night looking in the Hustler store."

    What happened to Michael Anthony being mentioned as a member of Chickensoup?

    "This band is three quarters original, one quarter inevitable" -David Lee Roth~2007

    "“We had a lot of fun on the tour – Dave was a blast. And next time we go out, we’re going to have some new stuff, too. I’m looking forward to getting on it. I’ve got tons of music written, such a variety of stuff… Actually, next week or the week after, Wolfie, Alex, and I are gonna start jamming. Maybe we’ll give Dave a call and see what he’s up to.” - Edward Van Halen ~ 2009

    Mike wasn't mentioned because no one knows who he is except for us
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    Yeah, Halfin doesn't know who Mike is. Sure, that's it.

    Man, some of you are just pullin' your puds for this project to tank.

    I wonder what happens if it doesn't. Do your heads explode?

    I find the omission of MA kind of insulting. He's an underrated bass player and he's arguably the best background singer in rock music.

    Not knowing his intentions, he may just left Michael Anthony's name out innocently most likely. I for one think this project will be absolutely stellar or better.

    Nobody knows Mike except us?

    Than I don't know WHO knows Wolfgang than. Because even WE barely know the kid.

    I'm just glad some musicians aren't afraid to take chances and put out music for the fans.

    Chickenfoot ain't right WITHOUT Mike!
    They need those backround vocals!

    No Mike No Mas!
