    Default Unheard Songs

    I was thinking about a few things while listening to Chickenfoot today.

    Sammy mentioned a few times that Down the Drain was originally just a jam that was 25 minutes long. He didn't mention whether he ad-libbed some lyrics to it or not. But he did mention that it was cut down and lyrics added the next day. I wonder if we'll ever hear the full 25 minutes? If so, what version of the lyrics would it have???

    The other song I've been wondering about is a song called Fry Day. I noticed it in one of the videos about the making of III. If you look at the interviews with Joe in the studio, it's written on the wall behind him. I wonder if that song will ever see the light of day?

    I thought I did see in a interview that he did keep alot of the lyrics in the DTD jam session.
    I will have to view the Making of III again because I missed Fry Day part of it.

    If it's a song about smoking weed, I hope not.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    FOR the firrst record on the 12 DAys of the foot podcasts they talked about one of the tunes (runnin out I think) that they recorded differently a few times, one was with an acoustic guitar, one was with a banjo, a piano etc....I'd love to hear the different takes of that tune.

    Why isn't the live album LV available to download somewhere like iTunes?
