    Default New Yorker Cartoon - Chickenfoot



    LOL, the New Yorker?

    The 'Foot is getting ten times the hype and publicity of VH 4 and the return of Diamond Dave. Not that I'm comparing. I'm truly not. But geez...somebody's manager knows how to do something right, and somebody's manager does not.

    Still goes to show ya...new music, even in this modern age, still makes a difference. Can't just keep touring over and over on the laurels of yesteryear.

    New bands Need more press than Classic bands.
    As simple as that, not a managment issue.

    okay, so then let's just say that Chickenfoot gets way more press than Nuno Bettencourt and Perry Farrell got.

    Uhh, yah, it is a management issue, and you'd have to be fucking blind not to see that. I don't understand your argument in the slightest. Probably because it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    Unsupportable bias shining through on the Links yet again

    A sick cartoon like that in the New Yorker is a little bit more than Ed hawking gear and "promising" new music in Women's Day, for Christ's sake.

    Between the New Yorker, the new songs, the website, the road test shows, the ticket giveaways, Guitar World, Best Buy warm-up gig - I think it's safe to say management is working this very well - as a manager should.

    Outside of the VH4 Press Conference, where Dave declared it a whole new band, there wasn't much press. I got my updates once in a blue moon from the VH Newsletter telling me it's time to buy Premium tickets... or it's time to buy the rag pimping Ed's guitar... and then, of course, the shoes.

    While I agree with you that a band like VH does NOT need as much press - the kind they're offering and making themselves available for, pales in comparison. You mean to tell me management couldn't convince VH to do promotional stuff similar to the above to generate interest?.. Naaaa.. that'd be too much work.. like actually doing something with 10 albums worth of material.

    I like the cartoon.

    I get the feeling that if just one song by the chicksters get's some real exposure, it could be quite a high profile release. The kids are into their guitar hero games and there are plenty of old rockers who would probably like a bit of old school riffage - the market is there. Just needs the right song or two and a lot of luck.

    I would really like it if these guys had some serious success with this thing.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    Cartoon is cool looking. I like it.

    Chickenfoot is doing the PR thing the way it should be done.
    Van Halen should take notes.

    Just a brief blurb regarding the band's upcoming performance at the Filmore.

    They may have a silly name, but the members of the new group Chickenfoot—the guitar whiz Joe Satriani, the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith, the former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, and the erstwhile Van Halen front man Sammy Hagar—know more than a thing or two about how to rock. They come to the Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza. (www.chickenfoot.us.)
