    Default Jason Bonham to be Chad Smith's fill in?

    Looks like it might happen when Chad can't play. Eddie Trunk reported it tonight on his Sirius show.
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    Jason's a phenomenal drummer, but Chickenfoot already has their man.

    Needless to say I'm not down with this.

    When Chad can't play what? A show? A recording session? As long it's not the show I attend.

    Sorry....Jason should stick with Foreigner.

    Word had it that Chad won't be able to always play with Chickenfoot, due to the Peppers. Boham will fill in when Chad can't. Thats what Trunk said.

    Who knows if that's true, but Jason Bonham is a completely acceptable replacement, in my opinion. He's a great player cut from his father's mold. I actually think that big Bonham drum sound might in fact be better for Chickenfoot. I love Chad's personality and playing, but his drum tones are not quite as big and round as I'd like to hear--mainly his snare. It's one of my very few and minor complaints about the CF record. At every listen I wondered what it would have sounded like had Chad been playing a deeper snare drum.

    They are lucky to have him. Jason is a fantastic drummer.

    WOW... A band replacing another member with a legends son... Ironic, don't you think.

    I like the chemistry with Chad and the band as it is. With Chad being busy in the future with RHCP this is actually good news. A good sign for CF fans, imo. Jason is a great drummer and this assures that CF can continue regardless of what the RHCP's do and it also shows you that Sam, Mike and Joe are serious about this continuing on and don't want to wait around too long.

    Sounds like so far Jason will only fill in when Chad is unable to but Chad is still the guy. I doubt they record an album with Jason and not Chad. This is good news for CF fans. CF will continue/move forward and when Chad is busy they have kick ass drummer #2 on standby.

    Jason seems to be the most popular fill-in drummer in the world. The strange thing is that I can remember what his dad's main band was, but I can't remember what Jason's main band was.

    I have a feeling this won't happen, but it wouldn't be the end of the world.

    And if Jason finds himself in a situation where he has something else going on, then maybe Alex Van Halen could fill in. Or Tommy Aldridge. Or Wild Mick Brown.

    not really since it's totally different, Jason isn't sammy's kid or mike's kid. He's a guy everyone is probably friendly with and in order to build on any momentum they have built they need to push it now, unless Chad comes out and tells us he was 100% on board with this but they booted him anyway then that's the only thing that would be the same with what you are implying.
