    Default Petition?

    I wonder if an online petition would get Sam's attention focused on putting out a Chickenfoot record.

    Thoughts?

    Me too. They let their opportunity pass. They had momentum after the first record, but it's gone now.

    If they put something out, great, I'll buy it, but I doubt very many people outside of die-hards will.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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

    I saw CF on that first tour and they had chemistry. Its gone now and its a shame because they could have gotten better.

    I would sign it, but these guys aren't focused anymore. Too many projects on their plate, and Sam is having too much fun doing what he wants.

    They'd think 'why spend time and money recording new songs when the majority will download it for free?' I think they'd sit up if fans put their hands in their pocket a la Kickstarter instead of signing a petition which is actually no commitment at all.

    I know I'm getting the amounts wrong, but want to agree with your post^^^.

    There's a band called The Headstones, here in Toronto. They've had some radio hits and some loyal fans. Hell, I've covered some of their tunes in the past. They had a couple of records and then seemed to fade away for a few years.

    A similar drive was started to help show interest and fund a new album. Let's say the goal was a hundred grand (like I said, my numbers are off! LOL), well, they ended up raising something like four hundred grand - or a similar ratio. Far exceeded the expectations!

    It can be done. Let's face it - money talks!!!

    I see comments on his FB page from people wanting him to do another Chickenfoot album. I don't think he/they will do one until they are ready. Which may be never.

    I'm probably in a different situation from a lot of you, in that I am approaching forty years of following Sam. He has built up decades of goodwill with me, so I'm ok with him shitting, or sitting on the pot until his feet get numb.

    It's pretty simple math. Sam just has to think: do I know someone better than Satch to write songs with? The answer is a resounding NO. I like Sam. But I also like new material. I'm not gonna pay to hear "55" or "One Way To Rock" for the 30th time.
