    This is about money as usual with Sam. The return of investment isn't great for Sam re CF who's already complained that he has to put those guys up...plain fares etc. Paraphrasing but he did say that.

    He actually bitched about the last CF album not selling well.

    Easier to be in a cover band.
    But also easy to release new material when you're a band of multi-millionaires.

    Has anybody heard Satriani's new album, "What Happens Next?" I have never bought a fully instrumental rock album, but I am intrigued by this based on positive reviews that I have read and the involvement of Chad.

    I think there were three things that hurt the last CF record.
    1. Sam didn't support it. Say what you want, he didn't. I don't know why. Perhaps he was burnt out or having marital problems. Who knows.
    2. The PR machine was nothing like the first album.
    3. Chad not participating in the tour deflated the band, the tour and ultimately, record sales.

    It takes money to make money. When you half ass it, it shows. And it did. The album was good, but the support wasn't.

    Yep. CF was the ONLY Sam collaboration that I had even a remote interest in. Bought both CD's when they hit. The 2nd one, I'll admit, wasn't up to par with the first but "No Change" is one of the baddest jams I had heard in long time up to that point.

    I guess I'm confused as to why Joe and Chad could get together eventually but not CF? Sam is putting way too much stock into The Circle.
