    He doesn't have time for Joe, but he can put aside some time to write with Mick Jones?

    Doesn't make much sense, but at least he's writing.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Sammy is always working. No need to slow down. Hope we hear the finished product.

    I was gonna post about this but you beat me to the punch. I think it's awesome news. Hopefully they'll recapture that 5150 magic. I'm just glad that it's a sign of a departure from all this country rock bulllshit.

    A photo of former VAN HALEN and current CHICKENFOOT vocalist Sammy Hagar and FOREIGNER guitarist Mick Jones "enjoying a great dinner at El Paseo restaurant [in Mill Valley, California] after writing for two days together at [Sammy's] studio" can be seen below. Hagar says: "What a blast — old friends getting together and writing some new songs."

    Jones last year recalled producing VAN HALEN's first album without David Lee Roth, 1986's "5150". Jones remembered the first day of sessions at Eddie Van Halen's studio back in 1985, telling Ultimate Classic Rock, "[Sammy Hagar] picked me up at the hotel and we were driving up to Eddie's studio and we were talking about the old days and finally he said, 'I've got to tell you, Mick, all of that was wild and crazy and all of that sort of thing,' but he said, 'We are just about to walk into another dimension of that. . . I wasn't going to tell you earlier, but you'd better get ready for some crazy shit now." I went, 'Whoa . . . ' and I'd been around and seen a lot, you know. But it was pretty crazy up there. It lived up to its title."

    He went on to explain, "It was a challenge, because they had a lot of the stuff that they had been writing and it was a new writing partnership with Sammy and Eddie and they were just coming down from the split with David Lee Roth. It was a big time. . . a lot of different things were happening and a lot of emotions were flying around. It was kind of exciting [but] it was [also] scary, thinking, 'Well, what can I do for this band?'

    Jones, who produced all of the FOREIGNER hits, shed some light on what he added to the VAN HALEN sound, which in the past had been firmly in the hands of longtime producer Ted Templeman. "I worked a lot on the arrangements and the vocal performances and helping [them] just to find the melodies a bit, especially on 'Dreams' and 'Love Walks In'," he said. "I put my advice and my suggestions in where I felt they merited them. I don't know if you could have gone in with an approach of, 'Oh, I want to change all of this,' which I think would have been disastrous. But I worked on the sound quite a bit."

    I bet the new songs will have "Love" in their title.

    If no Chickenfoot for awhile, this kinda sounds promising. I bet hes helping him write for his new accouistic album.

    Foreigners last album was really good imo, Mick can still write some good tunes.

    When was the last time Mick wrote a good rock tune?
    I'd rather have Sam write with Satch.

    Folks cry that Sam needs to write with other people. When Sam writes with other people, folks cry that it's not the right people.

    I don't think it is that at all.

    People on here really like Chickenfoot, and most of us (if I may be so bold to presume) think his solo work lately has been lackluster at best.

    I would personally just much rather have a new CF album than another half assed solo effort.

    Glad's he's working, but yeah, I wish he was recording with Chickenfoot instead of Mick Jones. Guilty as charged.

    Just as I would rather hear Robert Plant with Led Zeppelin instead of Alison Kraus (sp?), even though I really like what he did with Alison Kraus.
    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?"

    I'm just being my typical tongue in cheek, grain of salt kinda guy this morning.

    Of course I'd rather have Sam working on anything with Joe... but working with Mick could turn into something decent also. Sam has mentioned wanting to carry on with the "and friends" style format so...

    Maybe Mick Jones will be the next best ever guitar player Sam has ever worked with.

    Glad to hear anything from Sam, but especially after the "Friends" album, I will absolutely second DD's POV and last post.
