    Default Chickenfoot - Best New Band [Classic Rock Magazine Awards]

    Traditionally, the Best New Band accolade has gone to a group of eager young things. But not this year. As well as being a supergroup - the combination of Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony, and Chad smith easily qualifies for that accolade - Chickenfoot this year also proved they're a real band. The one CR readers voted Best New Band, in fact.

    The band were out on the road, but they did send us a video message, and we caught up with Chad Smith on the blower.

    ---

    This must be the first time that a group with 125 years of recording experience has picked up a Best New Band award.

    [laughing]A couple of the guys are even in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. But what can I say? It definitely makes us all feel young again. Seriously, I wish we could have been there to accept it.

    Has the reaction to Chickenfoot taken you a little by surprise?

    Very much so. And it's great. It's a band we did purely for fun, having come out of being friends. We all have other commitments, obviously, but people like the fact that we got together to play the music we want to play, with no outside pressure.

    You almost ended any possibility of a second album at your show at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire.

    Yeah, I threw a floor tom and nearly hit Sam. It could've been all over. But Shepherd's Bush was the home of the Who, right? I guess I was channeling the spirit of Keith Moon.

    From the stage that night, Hagar said that Chickenfoot will come back and do some bigger shows. Is that still likely?

    That show sold out so quickly, we had no idea it would happen. I dunno, maybe we can return next year.

    Chickenfoot's award was collected on their behalf by Pearl Aday.

    The mag also included a mousepad, a book of rock stories, a CR sticker, and a Best of 2009 CD, which included "Turnin' Left".

    If they are the best new band, then rock really is dead.
    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    They are the best new band.

    The sad thing is no other band even comes close.

    I do admit a real hate-on for that band...but not nearly the generic hate as someone else around here ;-)
