    Default SAMMY'S LATEST THOUGHTS ON CHICKENFOOT

    NOV 11 2013

    There is a lot of talk in the air about the guys getting together to start work on a new album soon. As you know, Chad, Mike, Joe & Sammy have been busy touring with their own projects this year but it does look like January may be in the cards for writing and collaborating on some new music! Stay tuned - we will let you know when there is confirmed action!

    "I love Chickenfoot. That's my band."

    There ya have it. He doesn't want back in VH. They're not hanging anything up. He's waiting for everyone's schedule to sync up. They'll be back.

    End of story.

    I know Sammy alluded to the fact that the full length album is a dinosaur and that he would just record a handful of songs and release them for download only. I think he mentioned this at the end of the last CF tour. I’m hoping that he has dropped those thoughts and with the surprise Top 20 showing of Sammy & Friends, I think he will.

    I love Chickenfoot. Their setlist on the CF III tour was a perfect mix of both albums. Can't wait to hear what's next.

    Eh. There are some things I would have changed.

    I was really bothered when they didn't play Dubai Blues, which I think was one of the best songs on CFIII. As much flack as it gets, I always thought Three And A Half Letters would have been vicious live, I love that song, and it seems like they dropped it after awhile.

    I'm being picky, as I thoroughly enjoyed my CFIII Tour show.

    Yes, Highway Star from the youtube clips is just amazing. But, since they don't play a lot else besides their own catalogue, which I'm fine with, maybe they should add a different cover.

    I know this has been discussed, but it would be cool to hear their take on just one Van Halen song, let the band jam out one Satch solo instrumental, and even one Chili Peppers tune. The Van Halen song could be something that hasn't been played live ever or for a really long time like Aftershock.

    I get that they don't want to lean on their past stuff, but they broke that rule by playing Bad Motor Scooter.

    If I were to hear Chickenfoot do just one van Halen song it would be humans being hands-down.

    I don't think Bad Motor Scooter counts. I do think of that as a rock classic, and since Sam was the first on the scene among them all and got his name out there with it, not to mention it's a kickass jam song,

    I'd hate to see them play Van Halen. They are all so far separated from that at this point, it's just not an appealing suggestion. Their sound just doesn't gel with that, or any RHCP for that matter.

    With a third album seemingly imminent, and two solid live tours, I don't see the need for any covers, let alone adding to how many they play each night. Their own material is strong enough to fill out a show.

    And I get that...and I'm torn. I say the same thing. It's cool that they haven't played a lick of Van Halen. It really is. I went to the show with my brother who had never heard any Chickenfoot, and he said he didn't care that they didn't play any Van Halen, it was still one of the best shows he had ever seen.

    I'm just thinking about being there, and bam they start whirling into Aftershock...or everybody leaves the stage and Joe plays that stripped down Always with Me, Always with You thing...both would be cool.

    They are always going to play one cover. They get good crowd reaction....so it will most likely be a Zep or Who tune...just my guess...but since they don't have another album or any plans to tour yet, I guess I'm jumping the gun.

    Thing is, if they played any Van Halen it'd be more in the vein of Top of the World or FWYS. Something people will know.

    As badass as hearing Aftershock would be, I could never see it happening.

    I'm still on the side of no VH at a foot show. I wouldn't mind hearing this version of HSAS do some old HSAS though. Through The Fire has been in my rotation for about two weeks now. Just a bad ass album!

    I don't really get the whole "no VH" at a CF show. Those songs DESERVE to be heard and quite frankly hearing the Wabos attempt them just flat out sucks balls. I don't give a shit about comparisons between Joe and Ed. Just because EVH doesn't give a shit about playing them doesn't mean Sam shouldn't, REGARDLESS if it's CF or not. Sam is a hypocrite in that sense. He says that fans come up to him all the time and ask him about VH, so why not give them VH?
