    Default Origons of the Chickenfoot logo??!!

    Strange, but true, Alex VH wears a black t-shirt and the same logo, only in a circle (not a square) in a interview that takes place in 1992. Its on the VH special "Egos and Icons", I've noticed it for awhile. I'm just curious to know is this how Sammy got the idea for the logo? The logo is identical. Did Alex have a hand in the Chickenfoot idea, without knowing it?

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    It is a variation of the peace symbol. However, I believe the manager of the Cabo came up with it and put it on a t-shirt that he gave to Sammy. I forget what video, but it can be seen in one of the Chickenfoot videos. Underneath it incorrectly says "Chickenfoot" in spanish. By incorrectly I mean, it apparently is written not grammatically correct.

    I thought it had something to do with the three original members( Sam,Mike,Chad) and the three claws on a chickens foot. Almost as a joke at first.

    Gus: Last year when we talked, the name Chickenfoot was a code name for the band and it was supposed to be changed. The name is definitely different and starting to catch on but why did the band decide to keep the name?

    Michael: Every single name we tried to come up with…and you Google it… and there is like a zillion bands that have that name. It was so hard. You can Google Chickenfoot and nobody had that (we both laugh.) It kind of grew on us. This one gentleman, Todd Gallapo, who worked with us on the album design came up with the logo how it is and then it all started to make sense. The logo looks like a Chickenfoot. Then we found out by Bryan Adams (who we did some photo sessions with) that when Richard Nixon was President that was the sign of the chicken from the draft dodgers. Did you know that?

    Gus: I did not know that.

    Michael: You know the peace symbol and if you were a draft dodger. Not that we knew any of that when we had the name. It was four guys saying lets call it Chickenfoot. It is very identifiable and when you say Chickenfoot you’re not going to think about anything else besides this band believe me.
