God knows why, but supergroups still get me excited. The latest one to tighten my shorts is set to record in September, and aside from the ridiculous tentative band name Chickenfoot, and the inclusion of the ridiculous ginger Sammy Hagar on vocals, there are a few reasons to keep faith in this collaboration.
Somehow Hagar was able to convince Chad Smith (on hiatus from The Peppers), Joe Satriani, and Michael Anthony to indulge him in this band. The weird gets weirder when you read this asinine quote from Hagar…
When people hear the music, it’s Led Zeppelin. It’s as good as that. I know that’s a mighty bold statement…We could rival Zep.
Yes, Sammy. That is a mighty bold statement. But you do have Satch shredding for you and the greatest, tallest, and funniest celebrity look-alike drummer the rock world has ever seen. So I’ll shut up until I hear the music, and continue trying to think of how I can add Michael Anthony to this band press photo I dreamed up.
