    Default Maybe not this year?

    From Blabbermouth.net:

    CHICKENFOOT drummer Chad Smith is hard at work with his other band, the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, so he doesn't have time to work on a new album with the supergroup. VH1 Radio Network's Dave Basner caught up with CHICKENFOOT guitarist Joe Satriani and asked him what that means for the band's future.

    "I think it's one of those years where [a new CHICKENFOOT album is] just not gonna happen this year," Joe said, "but Sam [CHICKENFOOT singer Sammy Hagar] and I were just talking about… The oddest thing happened, I was watching an old show, it's called 'Later' or something from England, and I saw Tom Jones do a great thing with Ethan Johns, who's played drums on one of my records that his father, Glyn, produced for me and they were doing a trio — drums, Ethan on guitar and just Tom singing. It was great! I got this idea about something that came from a conversation I had with Sam where we wanted to do a blues album, but we were trying to figure out the simplest way to do it. And we kept thinking just two guys and then I was thinking, well, maybe three, I don't know. And then I saw this thing, and so I said, 'You gotta go out and get this album!' It came out maybe in 2010 or something and it just passed me by somehow. That was the last conversation we had was talking about that and getting together next weekend."

    But let's hope that Chad's schedule changes!

    I'm not sure what to think. I definitely would welcome new music from these guys. However, I don't want to see Mike or Chad excluded. But it sounds like they almost don't have a choice when it comes to Chad.

    Hopefully, they can come up with a good solution. Perhaps he can "phone it in". The way modern technology is these days there's nothing saying these guys even have to be on the same continent to record new music. Yeah, the magic may not quite be the same. But maybe it will.

    Isn't that counter to the whole vibe of the band?

    They are a jam band, not being in the same room to record just doesn't seem right for these guys. Van Halen? Sure, studio creatures, but not Chickenfoot, would rather see them get another drummer full time.
    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!

    How about Jason Bonham in that role? I was hoping for him when Kenny filled in.

    Default Fuck this

    Alright then, Chad. Take 'er easy.

    I'm as big of a Chad fan in Chickenfoot as it gets...but this is too much.

    Sammy's getting too old. Get someone else. I'll finally say it.

    Fletch, I love your username as well as your choice. Jason Bonham would be great. Obviously he's a great drummer, but being the son of a member of Led Zeppelin is the main reason. It would be like "Van Zeppelin with Satch." They could play Chickenfoot songs, Van Halen songs, and Zep tunes.

    I know the guy's been in many bands and was even on that "Supergroup" VH-1 show, but I think his home should be The Foot.

    Him, or Denny Carmassi. That makes sense too because of him being Montrose's drummer. And I'm no drumming connoisseur, but does he not sound phenomenal in "Father Sun?!" Very rarely do I go out of my way to play air drums--especially when it's not AVH--but with that song I have to.

    So that's it. 2009 was magical. 2011-2012 they had to tour without Chad, and their tour was only like a half hour long anyways. Get someone new. Full-time.

    Sure, he's a fun guy. But so are Sammy and Mike. This isn't a comedy troupe. And Chad's not even that funny. He's no Diamond Dave. He's just wild and crazy and dare I say the words "zany" or "wacky." Like a Conan O'Brien or Craig Ferguson, only Chad actually can be funny at times unlike them. And I figured this might happen with them being on the Super Bowl and all. Figured they'd want to capitalize and get back into the studio with new music as soon as possible.

    I'll say it again: I love Chad, but get fuckin' someone else full-time, and bring him back as a special guest on occasion. They're too old and we need some new Foot and we need it more frequently.

    And start playing some fuckin' Van Hagar tunes finally.

    Don't get me wrong- I'd love to see Chad stay in the band and actively participate. However, if he can't participate then perhaps it is time to find someone else.

    I like the idea of Denny Carmassi. BTW- I just looked him up because I wasn't aware of what else he did besides Montrose. He's got quite an impressive resume.

    While I was supportive of Jason Bonham last time this issue came up, someone here quickly dissuaded me from that idea. I saw him in concert last summer and his playing along with his credentials are absolutely outstanding. What it comes down to is a chemistry thing. Maybe the shows that Jason is doing with Sam this summer will prove whether or not the chemistry is there.
