    Default What influences or "tip of the hat" do you hear in the Chickenfoot CD????

    I think it is remarkable, especially for a new band, that "tips the hat" to so many artist before them, but yet sounds totally original. So what artists do you hear throughout out the debut CD. I hear a Hendrix, AC/DC vibe, believe it or not some Sabath, Old Sammy montrose vibe, Led ZEP, Alice and chains, the stones, and After I listed to FITP a few times I notice in the second part of the song some Aerosmith in Joe's guitar work !! Just killer ! Any body care to add what I have missed, I'll have to go through the disc again.

    I've noticed Sammy making reference to Up For Breakfast in DTD. He also referenced Deeper Kinda Love in LTF.

    I hear Sam tip his hat to Sam Kinison's performance in Back to School right before the Ariba part in Get it On.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    for sure, both of these you noted are direct lyrical references from previous tunes. The Triumph thing does come out in FITP...kinda sounds to me a bit like the vibe of Fight The Good Fight and Magic Power. A buddy of mine also sighted drums similar to Everybody Wants Some at the 3 min mark of Get It Up...give it a listen...he's right!
    ...and in the end, on dreams we will depend...

    There's a ZZ Top lick that Joe uses in DTD and other songs too. Check out
    La Grange, then listen to CF you'll probably catch it.

    As I mentioned when I first heard the riff, I think the beginning of Down The Drain has a similar vibe to The Inside by Van Halen.

    I think they are definitely tipping their hat to the mighty Zep in Future In The Past. This song has similar melodic elements to Thank You at the beginning.

    The bridge to the guitar solo in Get It Up reminds me a little of Deuce by Kiss. It had me bobbing my head the way the guys in Kiss do when they play this song.

    Speaking of the Stones - The interlude of GIU does sound a bit like a more kinetic version of the intro of "Gimme Shelter".

    Little bit of Zep in Soap and Bitten by the Wolf.

    Chad mentioned that in the 12 Days promo. Also present is a middle eastern drum feel. Perhaps a little Zep (Kashmir) in that.
