    CHICKENFOOT Guitarist Has CHAD SMITH Replacements In Mind http://bit.ly/dlOZ1w
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    Too bad the Chili's don't just hang it up. The world doesn’t need another “Hey-yo, listen to what I say-yo” album.

    I don't mind a scenario where Chad is part of the recording and then have a fill-in drummer on the tour. I think both Lee or Bonham could each work well but for different reasons.

    Those replacements would be good but their styles are different than Chad's.
    That is what makes Chickenfoot sound "funky" at times.
    I'm not saying Lee or Bonham couldn't do a good job but Chickenfoot is a band where they need what each member brings.

    I could think of better guys than those 3.

    At what times does Chickenfoot sound funky? They sound straight ahead rock to me, including the percussion.

    NOooooo. Not Tommy Lee! Tommy Lee couldn't hold a candle to Chad Smith's playing. What has Satch been smoking?? Bonham would be cool, but he has his own thing going on right now. Abe Laboriel is an excellent drummer, but not sure if he would fit in with the chemistry of the band. I would nominate either Brian Tichy (Billy Idol, Foreigner) or Ray Luzier. These two guys definitely have the chops to pull it off and think they would fit right in.

    Mike Portnoy is the only replacement that makes sense to me. I am not excited with Satriani's choices.

    "Dude--it's like all good, yo! That's how I roll, dog!" That's probably why he annoys the shit out of you like he does to me as well. He was much cooler and less of an anus back in the '80s. I do love The Crue and his drumming.

    I know it is a Van Halen forum, but if Chad has to choose, why would anyone think he should choose CF over RHCP?

    The RHCP are about ten times more popular than CF and he has been with those guys forever.

    He also probably makes a gazillion more dollars from RHCP than the Foot.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his
