    Default Sounds like the Foot is over...

    I don't get it, Sam must be over it due to Chad's unavalability...

    Per Joe:

    Bring up Chickenfoot and, if it's possible, Satriani gets even quieter. He wants nothing more than for the gang to reunite for a third album, but he has been told that's not likely in the cards.

    "I get it. They're all Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, they've done it already. But for me, this was my dream come true," he says. "It's the band I never got in as a kid."

    Satriani pulls out his iPhone and plays a dozen audio clips - most are wildly catchy power-chord progressions. "Don't you think these would be great stuff for Sammy to sing against?" he says hopefully.

    Damn. Sounds like Joe is taking this hard.

    All because of a drummer.

    He's Joe Satriani. You telling me at some point over the last 30 years he couldn't have assembled a kick ass band to his liking? I find that very hard to believe.

    Satriani could have assembled a traditional band years ago but for whatever reason didn't click with anybody. Sometimes it takes years for fulfillment to make an appreance.
    Most of us know what it's like to experience true love. Joe's solo career was like being single, where he was banging chicks left and right but never settling down. He finally finds the love of his life and wants to get married but can't...

    Excluding when his wife was expecting, it kind of makes you wonder about some of those stories of Sam not being a team player or not available or willing to do some work when others were ready.

    Sam's ego has been known to stall forward progression at times, but that's my opinion.

    I guess Sam and Joe could always work on a group of songs and have them ready to go when everyone is available, but Chickenfoot seems to be at their best when everything is fleshed out with all four guys in the room.

    I'll just harbor the hope that when Chad is available, Sam can break away from whatever mediocre endeavor interests him and crank out a new set of tunes with the boys in the short time it took to do the first CF. I doubt very much we'll ever see a full CD again.

    At least to me... this lull is more about Sam than Chad when it comes to new music. Touring is a whole different story though.

    Sorry if this has already been posted but it sheds light on where Sam's head is at the moment, regarding CF apart from the Smith issue.





    I know you’ve had a new Chickenfoot album somewhere on the agenda. What kind of work have you guys done on that item so far?

    None. I sent Joe some lyrics the other day that I thought were just really great, like ‘Come Closer‘ kind of lyrics. I was sitting up late one night and I wrote something real personal and ‘Come Closer’ was like that. I sent it to him and he wrote that music to the lyrics. So I sent him another thing and he gets back to me and says, “Oh, there’s some great prose in there — I love these lyrics, but what am I supposed to do with these?” and I said, “Let’s write a song” and he’s going, “Why, is there going to be another Chickenfoot?” like he was questioning it and I went, “I don’t know, is there?” [Laughs]

    That’s the kind of thing that Chickenfoot is. It’s out there and I just don’t see us pushing everything else aside and doing it right now. We’ve all got busy summers and things [happening]. The fact that there wouldn’t be another Chickenfoot record is highly unlikely, because it’s too good and we all love each other so much. Doing it is just fun. It’s just very hard to make a record nowadays. As you well know, I spent a lot of time and creativity on my last CD, which I’m so proud of that. ‘Winding Down’ is just the coolest thing I think I’ve done…one of the coolest things I’ve done in my whole career. And then with ‘All We Need Is An Island’ and everything in between, it’s just like, “Wow.” I’m just loving that I was so experimental and so free-spirited and so free artistically.

    It sold like 44,000 copies or something. I’ve got to tell you, thank God I don’t need money, because that album would have put me in the poorhouse. You know, I probably lost $150,000 and I hate to talk money like that, but it’s true. It cost me $150,000 more than I made from that record. And you know, the record company lost money and it’s like, “God, why do all of that to everybody?” I want to make records and I love music and I love writing, but my God.

    To go in with Chickenfoot in this day and age and spend as much money as we spend on a record, because I own my own studio and we use it part-time, but you know, [there are still] certain things, having four guys flying around and coming around and staying in hotels and renting cars, it costs twice as much to make a Chickenfoot record and I’m just thinking, “Who wants to lose a half a million dollars? Okay, me — let’s go do Chickenfoot again!” You know? It’s crazy. It’s a really weird world out there for that kind of music. My album came out and sold close to 17,900 copies or whatever it was the first week and it was No. 22. Drake sold 670,000 or something and came in at No. 1. Elton John sells like 40,000 and comes in at No. 3. It’s like, “Get out of here!” You know what I mean?

    Pretty honest comments from the old man. I also think Chad not being available to tour has a lot to do with it. I know a lot of folks here think Sam/ the band can get just anyone to fill in for Chad. Technically you would be right. I side with Sam on the no Chad, no Chickenfoot issue though. There is obviously a vibe that Sam gets with him, that he doesn't feel can be replicated with anyone else on the road. So with Sam's comments about the cost factor, I don't see another album in the near future , unless a tour with Chad was to follow.

    I usually fall behind Sam in what he says, but I think there is a LOT of bullshit in that statement.

    He OWNS his own recording studio. The fucking Foo Fighters released an absolute kick ass album that was recorded in Dave Grohl's basement. It has never been cheaper to create an album, I just don't know how guys can even say that with a straight face.
    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!
