    Default Chickenfoot, A Jeopardy Answer.

    Last night on Jeopardy, there was a category about rock bands, Supergroups to be more specific, and Chickenfoot was one of the answers. I forget the answer exactly, but to paraphrase: "Chad Smith, Joe Satriani, and Michael Anthony make up the group Chickenfoot with this former Van Halen frontman."

    It's college week, and they all stood there blankly.

    Yeah, I stepped out of the house for all of like 2 minutes to be informed that I could have given the correct question to one of the answers.

    Sorry to say if no one can remember any of the three iconic singers in Van Halen, the band may be dead. At least maybe we can see them at the fair with Night Ranger and REO Speedwagon !!

    Not that they wouldn't know who Sammy or Dave are, just that they wouldn't know a thing about Chickenfoot.

    Weird Al's "I Lost on Jeopardy" comes to mind.

    that's a pretty good indiction of the state of the music industry right there, and why a group like Chickenfoot (or Van Halen for that matter) will do OK sales wise, and get critical acclaim but never again be a "super group" as far as sales or radio play goes


    that's your music BUYING demographic, there, and they couldn't care less about Sammy or Dave or Eddie.

    It depends on what they were looking for. If the trivia question was looking for Sammy Hagar as the lead singer of VH, then they should get that. If the question is about CF I'm not surprised that they wouldn't know that.

    If a similar question was posed to me when I was in college I would have known the members of Led Zeppelin and Cream but would not have known the members of Foghat and Vanilla Fudge. Is Van Halen Led Zeppelin and Cream or has VH become Foghat and Vanilla Fudge?
