    Default Problem with crowdfunding a new CF record

    I was thinking today about the possibility of crowdfunding a CF record, responding to Sammy's comments that it cost to make an album. Other bands would go to crowdfunding nowadays when faced with such a situation. Except it's not possible for CF. Everyone knows Sammy's a multi-millionaire. No one is going to send money his way knowing this. Hence the current situation. Either Sammy decides to do it and fund it. Or nothing will happen, except for that one song.

    I guess it would depend on what the band offers in return other than new music. Rob Zombie went the crowd funding route on his last movie 31. Depending on how much you donated you could receive things like signed movie posters, your name in the credits of the movie, a walk on part in the movie, etc. Also, don't forget there were quite a few asshats out there that donated to Kanye to help him get out of debt.
    I think it could be done if handled properly. It would almost be like paying for the album up front

    No way someone like Sammy Hagar would ask for handouts from his fans.

    I mentioned this idea a while back as a way for the fans to show interest in a new CF record. IIRC I was eaten alive.

    That wasn't directed at you, it was directed at Sam if he ever went that route.

    Sorry, I just feel that would be a horseshit thing to do at this point in Sam's career.

    People are free to feel and express otherwise. No attacking anyone on my part.

    He's probably too wealthy for that to reach a target goal of his intention (what was it, 1/2 a million, did he say?).

    Unless as someone said, for varying tiers of the pledges, there were bonuses. Meet and greets. Signed VIP stuff. Limited edition merch. Redheads go nuts for that stuff.

    But I don't think, despite what Sam says, that money is the real factor in making new Chickenfoot music.

    I don't recall if the perks you mentioned were in the post I was talking about. If they were, then I completely missed it. That to me is waaay different then simply chipping in as fans, because Sam doesn't want to use his money.

    Sammy cites cost as a factor but I think him not able/willing to put in the tremendous effort (artistically) is the real obstacle.

    This is the high school version of what Sam is doing:

    "Hey, Sam! want to come over and watch the ball game and knock back some brews?"
    "Nahh, my mom is out with the car so I have no way to get there."
    "Dude, I can pick you up."
    "Well, I don't have any beer money to chip in."
    "Dude, I have a case left over from last week."
    "Well, I have to watch my little sister until my mom gets home."
    "Dude, the game doesn't start until 9:00 tonight, what time does she get home."
    "I think her car may have broken down and she won;'t be home until next week."

    Sammy's cost excuse is just that...an excuse. He doesn't want to say "yeah, I just really don't like the writing process much any more."

    He has fully admitted that he struggles with writing, that it is a chore for him. Most really wealthy people don't do things unless they enjoy them. Don't really blame the guy.

    Heh. He says it's about money, but it ain't.

    I think it's about Chad, if I had to wager.

    I DON'T like the idea of a crowd funded record from CF. they all have tons of cash. I think, they actually did lose money on CFIII, the first CF record did really well and I think they thought they would repeat easily so they pumped a bit more money into it and got bit....remember it had that 3D art and all that jazz. I would imagine it's a lot easier for Sam to just cut stuff at home with his house band (the wabo's) then it is to sequester joe, chad and mike for 6 months to work out a record.

    sam's almost 70, you can tell him stuff till he's blue in the face but if he's set in his ways it's hard to change someone's mindset

    The new song Sam played during the Dan Rather interview tells me Sam still has plenty of creative juices left. IT's something else, a mix of ego and also old habits he doesn't want to change. Satch has plenty of new music for CF, it's such a waste, argh!!!!

    I can't really think of a good reason why he wouldn't wanna do a CF tour unless it's a scheduling thing. It ain't Joe or Mike. So clearly it's something with Sam or Chad.
