    Default Chickenfoot Appearing on Conan's New Tonite Show June 5th

    Mmmhmm. That's how a promotional junket gets done.

    Not a bad move at all, looking forward to seeing these guys live on TV!

    I guess they really can't do worse than VH did promoting the 2004 tour.

    This is a fairly astute move on the part of the band's management. There is already considerable curiosity about Conan's new show, and to be appearing a few days in advance of the album's release (and the same day as the European release) is a masterstroke. Also consider the high profile (pun intended ) idea of getting a Tonight Show gig as well. Even the by comparison tv-shy Pearl Jam have agreed to do the show on June 1st.

    By the way, Will Ferrell will also be on the Pearl Jam telecast, more than likely setting the stage for some predictable jokes at Chad Smith's expense later in the week.

    Damn, and I have tickets to see Conan on the 23rd. It's probably just as well - I'm guessing if you went to this show, you might not have time to get over to Best Buy for the signing afterwards.

    I'm not at all a fan of Conan, but I'll catch this for sure. The Foot sure are making a high profile impact on the scene.

    LOL. Indeed. And it's nothing compared to Green Day's current blitz, who have a far bigger global presence and less need to do things like junkets, they're doing it anyway. So far, to promote 21st Century Breakdown, just in the last week they've appeared on Saturday Night Live, the Colbert Report, they did a free show in Central Park this morning which was broadcast in part by Good Morning America, they're appearing on Letterman tonight, they're doing a signing in Hollywood on June 2, they're doing random club gigs before their huge arena tour this summer, they're offering bonus non-album tracks on iTunes, offering free ticket giveaways to their fanclub and myspace/facebook subscribers...and all this while they give the finger to WalMart, the biggest music outlet in the country, for censorship....

    There's a right and a wrong way to self-promote. Some bands know how to do it. Some do not.

    It DOES seem to be a pretty simple concept, no?

    It's idiotic, really. There's really only two conclusions to choose from.

    Incompetence.

    Indifference.

    Given the history of Chuckles and Bozo, I'm inclined to theorize it's a hybrid of both.

    LOL! I believe you're right.
