    Default Satriani: "The Door is Always Open for Chickenfoot"

    Joe Satriani says that "the door is always open" for CHICKENFOOT to reunite for more live shows and possible new music.

    The supergroup, which features the legendary guitarist alongside former VAN HALEN singer Sammy Hagar, ex-VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith, has been largely inactive since 2012 when it toured with Kenny Aronoff on drums due to Smith's busy schedule with his main band.

    Last year, CHICKENFOOT reunited at the Fillmore in San Francisco during the fifth annual "Acoustic-4-A-Cure" benefit concert. The event marked the band's first performance together in just over two years.

    Asked in a new interview with Meltdown of Detroit's WRIF radio station if there are any plans for CHICKENFOOT to play again, Satriani said (hear audio below): "Things have been so busy here, because of [Hagar's] THE CIRCLE [band with Anthony], mainly because Sammy wound up hiring my son ZZ to do the longform video for the whole album, THE CIRCLE album, and then the subsequent videos for the singles. So we've been continually tied in to the whole circle — if I can use that word — of that. Every year we do the acoustic benefit together here in San Francisco, so, yeah, we're a very close-knit circle of friends and co-workers, I guess you might say, and we're always talking about, 'Maybe we can do this. Maybe we can do that.' We were pretty close to doing that Huntington Beach thing [Hagar's 'High Tide Beach Party & Car Show'], but it turned out my recording schedule created a conflict."

    The guitarist continued: "If I know Sam, when he says, 'Look, next year I'm taking off' — that's what he says, like, every year — and after about, I'd say about an hour and a half of the year, January 1st, at 1:30 in the morning, he'll call me up and say, 'Hey, I've got an idea [to] get the band back together.' So you never know. But the door is always open, because there's a true connection between the four of us, and we'd all do it in a second."

    In March 2017, CHICKENFOOT released "Divine Termination", its first new tune in five years, on "Best + Live", the band's first-ever best-of collection.

    CHICKENFOOT's most recent album of all-new material was "Chickenfoot III", the band's second LP, issued in 2011.

    Satriani released his sixteenth solo album, "What Happens Next", in January 2018 via Sony/Legacy Recordings.


    I would much rather these guys reband than Sam Halen. In half a heartbeat.

    They tried that on III, ie: quirky singers.

    If we are simply talking a nostalgia(no new music) tour, I would agree.

    Followed by a VH nostalgia tour with Mike and Sam.

    Love the 'Foot, and new music, if it were to come, would probably come from them, before the two lineups that I would prefer from VH.
    Utilize. Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.
