    Default Dang, no Foot for 2013

    Sammy posted his annual Christmas message this afternoon.
    He said with Joe out on tour and Chad just coming off the Peppers tour, Chickenfoot is on hold for 2013.

    I'm happy to see him say Chickenfoot is on hold. Nice to know it's at least something these guys think about.

    Hard to say that about another band...

    While I'm glad he at least mentioned Chickenfoot, I'm pretty disappointed. I wonder if they're disappointed by sales/interest and that's why things are on hold.

    I do hope that it means Sammy will put out another album which will fire future interest in Chickenfoot.

    Well if that's the case it's their own damn fault for not touring behind the album until eight months after it's release.

    He said Joe's on tour in 2013 and Chad is finishing up the long Peppers tour. Thought I typed that in the first post.

    If he could pull off another Ten 13 or Marching to Mars I'd be just as happy.

    Hey it was a short term thing but fun. Just go out and get some more guys for guitar how about DeMartini or some other underemployed guitar virtuoso?

    They would only be human to let the sales decline bother them.

    It was a rather large drop off, and for a band in which for half the band it isn't even their primary focus, it wouldn't shock me if we don't hear from them for a while.

    I didn't think too much of CFIII, I thought their debut was much better, hopefully they will come back and give us CFZOSO.

    Sounds about right. I didn't have high expectations for them ever since that super halfassed CFIII tour. I think the record was superior to the first, but they really dropped the ball on doing promotion of any kind. Hopefully Mike can find someone new to jam with, I feel bad for that dude.

    Perhaps they learned from their experiences on III. Maybe instead of rushing and bashing together another album, they're planning on waiting until everyone's schedule actually matches up and do it right in beginning in either late '13 or early '14.

    Well, if it IS the end of the road for The Foot, I'm really glad I saw them earlier on this year...Fingers crossed they do reunite at some point as I would love the chance to see them again, either here or in the US.

    They unfortuantely have not come anywhere near me, so I haven't seen them.

    I'm not too surprised they're not doing anything first half of 2013, but I was expecting something for the second half of the year - I was thinking they'd start writing and recording. It doesn't seem that Sam's the hold up since his schedule is wide open. Is it Joe or Chad?

    I thought it was rushed too. Gets no play anymore unlike the first one. Still love Come Closer though. Either do the next album and tour with the originals, or move on to something else. That's my take. Sam and the Wabos will be here next month. Probably gonna pass on seeing them.
