    Default Any sign of a new Wabo album?

    Are they even working on anything? I was far from impressed with their last couple of albums but with Sam being all fired up with Chickenfoot I figured maybe some of that would overflow and result in a new Wabo album.

    I know his stuff with the Wabo's isn't everyones thing, but I always liked their sound and he has done some cracking songs with them over the years.

    I cant see one happening in awhile. If not, at all. I think we might get the odd song now and again only available for download, but not a full album.
    The last album "Livin' it up" was to me, my least fave Sammy album in his whole career. "Let me take you there", "Sailin" and "Mexico" pretty much saved it to being a disaster. "Cosmic..." was'nt a Wabos album, they're were a few Wabos tracks, mixed in with the Planet US Sessions, etc.

    Personally I'd love a new Sammy solo album in the vein of "Marching to Mars" again, or even "Standing Hampton". He needs to drop the "fun fun fun" vibe and do some serious rock again, and put in a cuppla good ballads too.

    I dont know when the next Chickenfoot album will drop, but I think he will try and get another CF album out before another Solo release, or before his next career move.

    I could live with just CF releases from the man from here on out. I've grown kinda ho-hum on the Wabos and Sam's solo releases were a few degrees better.


    The Foot albums however just friggin smoke.

    Were Not 4 Sale and Livin' It Up! considered Wabo albums?

    If so, I really wouldn't care if I never heard another one if that is how good they are going to be. Just keep on rocking out with CF, and keep the Wabos as your solo touring band in down time.

    If I recall correctly, during Sammy's New Year's message, he mentioned the possibility of a new solo album being recorded this year. I think he was also talking about a contest to produce a song from it.

    Personally, I'd like to see him record another solo album before he does more Chickenfoot. I believe that the bounce between the two will feed each other and make better, more inspired music as a result.

    This is exactly what I'm thinking. Some of his best solo work, imho, has been when he's also been working back and forth with others or when he was churning out records in the Capitol years.

    I don't know guys, if I have choice between Sam collaborating with Satch, Mike and Chad vs. Vic and Mona, I'll take the former.

    I think Sam gets a little lazy when he isn't motivated. Sorry to say, but I don't think the Wabos motivate him at this point in his life/career. He'll pen a gem like Open(imo) and then write a stinker like On a Roll( my vote for worst song in his career).

    If he brought back Jesse, that may light a spark.

    Funny, I initially thought the same thing about "I'm On A Roll". I listened to it recently, and my opinion has changed. Granted, I don't pay any attention to NASCAR, but it is a solid rock tune. It's about the thrill of the race and the triumph of winning. If I could identify with it more, I'd say it's better than 55 in terms of fast car songs.

    I find it odd how my opinion of Sammy's songs changes over time...

    This is very true, a lot of Jesse's keyboards I was none to keen on, but when you look back through the catalogue where he's been working with Sam there's really something there.

    I wonder what the deal was with him not sticking around when the 04 re-union happened, whether there was a spat between them over it?
