8) This could be interesting...

From The Canadian Press:

Sammy Hagar to hit studio with guitar hero Joe Satriani and ex-Van Halen bassistMay 23, 2008

TORONTO — Sammy Hagar has a new supergroup that includes a virtuoso guitarist and a fellow Van Halen alumnus, but fans eager to see the so-called Red Rocker sing alongside the six-string hero he's most famously associated with shouldn't hold their breath.

It seems a peace settlement in the war of wills between Hagar and Eddie Van Halen could be years away, if it arrives at all.

"I love Eddie, but we don't love each other," Hagar said during an interview Thursday.

"I heard that he got cleaned up again. Hopefully he stays that way and doesn't die, because before we both die we have to be friends again.

"But like I said, people have to be level-headed and have to be healthy before you can settle a feud."

Eddie Van Halen's battles with drug and alcohol addiction are legend, marring past shows with Hagar and delaying the start last year of a reunion tour with original singer, and Hagar's predecessor, David Lee Roth.

Instead of waiting for that friendship to be repaired, Hagar has teamed with acclaimed guitarist Joe Satriani, Red Hot Chili Pepper drummer Chad Smith, and former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony. The group, code-named Chickenfoot, will enter the recording studio just before Labour Day.

"We've written eight, nine songs. We just got to go in the studio Sept. 1," Hagar said.

"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."

Hagar, 60, stills looks remarkably like he did during his time with Van Halen - suntanned and goateed with that trademark mop of curly blonde hair.

In town following a show at Casino Rama, north of Toronto, with his "party band" The Wabos, Hagar took up residence for the day in a downtown hotel to promote his latest career turn as a spirits connoisseur.

Halen fans are no doubt familiar with the song "Cabo Wabo", a track from the multi-platinum 1988 album "OU812" that sang the virtues of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Hagar's love of all that is Cabo has seen him open cantinas bearing the name, and now he's spending the summer selling Cabo Wabo Tequila.

The brand, with its origins in Hagar's desire to serve a local, high-end tequila at his cantina in Cabo San Lucas, grew over the years, eventually gaining recognition and robust sales in the United States. Last year, Hagar sold an 80 per cent stake in the company to multinational spirits company Campari for a reported US$80 million.

"It wasn't planned. All this happened step by step. Every time I turned around there was a new opportunity for it," Hagar said.

"Everyone thought it was a gimmick. It's an expensive tequila (a 750 ml bottle retails for $71.20 in Canada). They thought, what does this guy know about premium tequila?"

Apparently Hagar has even convinced bassist Anthony, who was known for drinking Jack Daniels whisky straight from the bottle onstage during his Van Halen years, to quaff his tequila while performing.

The two have remained close, and perform together often, since the Hagar incarnation of Halen finally folded after a reunion in the late 1990s.

When the band reunited last year to tour with original singer David Lee Roth, Anthony was replaced by Eddie Van Halen's son Wolfgang.

Although it's "great that they finally did the reunion with Dave," Hagar said he had no desire to take in the show.

"Mikey should have been there. It's ridiculous," he said.

"(Seeing the show) just wouldn't interest me in the least, all the hoopla and all that around something without it being the original."

As for the Van Halen vs. Van Hagar debate, Hagar is content to let the fans choose their favourite and listen to the old recordings.

"I'm really not interested in being in that band right now. I'm so much more interested in our little Chickenfoot project," Hagar said.

"To me that's 10 times Van Halen, because it's functional, we all like each other."

"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."

Yeah, right Sammy. Have another shot of tequila. *LOL*LOL*
Sammy's Cabo Ego at work. :lol:

Poor Joe Satriani. He'll have to play the crappy Van Hagar tunes onstage (if it gets that far). :( "Finish What Ya Started", "Right Here, Right Now", "Why Can't tHis Be Love", etc. AAAAARRGGG!!!

I don't know, I think Sammy has been the weakest link in every major band he's been in except his solo career, so I'm not gonna jump up and down on this too much, but I will check it out and see what Joe will be doing in this atmosphere. *r*

Agreed!

For me this project has a high curiosity factor to it, but that is really it. I'm not really all that excited about it.

Yeah, I noticed the Zep comment when I posted it, but didn't highlight it so you guys could discover it for yourselves. :P Obviously, it's a ludicrous comment, but with this mix of people I am curious to hear what they come up with. :D

Good point.
I think those sorts of comments ("We could rival Zep") should remain in the exited brain of the conciever. I'm sure it's nice to be pumped about a project especially if you have great musicians on board but those sorts of comments are just a tad over the top and sets you up for a fall.

Be interesting to hear how it comes out. I think someone as funky as chad smith might give Satch some room to really fill in the sound since melodies will already be handled. Mikeys a madman of course so I'm at least excited about 3/4 of this. :lol:

UPDATE: Further confirmation that this project will be going into the studio in September:

HAGAR, ANTHONY, SATRIANI, SMITH 'Supergroup' CHICKENFOOT To Hit Studio In September - July 12, 2008

The new "supergroup" featuring former VAN HALEN frontman Sammy Hagar, ex-VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony, guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith recently began work on material for its debut album. According to Anthony, that music that has so far been completed for the band, tentatively called CHICKENFOOT, is "F--IN' rockin and we hope to be in the studio finishing it up early September so we can get out there and PLAY!"

Smith told The Pulse of Radio he got involved in the project by owning a home near Hagar's place in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. "If you're in Cabo, of course you know Sammy 'cause he's, you know, he rules the joint," he said. "And he's a really nice man, he's a great guy actually. Somehow he's taken a liking to me, and we played in Vegas, and we played some cover songs — we're a good cover band now. He got pretty excited about it and it actually sounded really good. Him and Joe got together up at his place and they wrote like five things together, and we'll see."

Not too worried about anyone trying to take over really. These guys have been good at dealing with super egos and luckily I think they're all mostly level headed. Sam and Mike had to deal with Ed, Satriani just seems to enjoy playing I can't imagine him trying to really take this thing in any one direction other than just having fun, and well I just can't see Chad being a diva.

I think the absurdity of it is its hard to rival with legendary influence when you haven't even released your stuff yet. :P Musicianship wise, I'd say they are on par though.

I couldn't agree more...no doubt it was an arrogant statement...but musically,in my opinion,anything's possible... :D

I don't know if I could put Hagar The Horrible on a par with Robert Plant ( [-X ), Chad Smith on a par with John Bonham ( :shock: ) or Michael Anthony on a par with the multi-instrumental Jones. [-( Same instruments is about it. :lol: Satriani is a phenomenal guitarist and totally the highlight of that band though. With statements like that from Hagar whose songwriting smashes include "I Can't Drive 55" and other examples of deep lyrical achievements like "Wham Bam Amsterdam", "Spanked" and "Mas Tequila" I won't hold my breath for them to get up there to Zeppelin status. :wink: Sammy sure has "High Hopes" (title of another one of his lyrical masterpieces). Maybe they can open up for Van Halen next time around. :lol:

PS-Jeep, how many times have I told you to stay off that tequila when you are posting stuff here? *LOL*LOL*

I guess what I'm trying to say is this....to you,and many others,Zepplin is some legendary band,with 4 musical talents that came together to form something 'special'...
to me,and many others...they're overrated,and really nothing special at all...

now...to compare Hagar to Plant,I'll admit,is ridiculous,just based on Hagar's previous "music and lyrics"...I'll admit that...but it's hard to convince a 'non fan' of Zepplin that someone else can't come along and be better in some way...

all I'm sayin'...... :D

The statement I was adressing was that "musically they are on a par with Zeppelin" and -like Zep's music or not- everybody in Chicken Salad-or whatever their name is-is extremely outgunned in individual matchups except Satriani technically.

I don't know, Zepp built their legend/reputation/aclaim from over ten years of albums and tours as a unit and for Hagar to say stupid sh*t like he did comparing a band that has played together for a few months is ludicrous, pompous, egotistical and flat out absurd.

Can someone come along that is better than Zeppelin? Sure, I like a lot of bands better than Zepp, but they all earned it in the trenches together over many years. Zepp wasn't a one-hit wonder/first album phenomenom. Anybody think this is gonna last more than a year? Hagar ain't gonna give up his solo stuff (though he should. :P ), nor will Satriani. Michael Anthony would be happy to jump on anything at this point, so he's secure. :lol: The "Curiosity" factor is what will draw people to this (as well as Hagar and Satch fans), which is the onlyr eason Hagar's first album in VH sold what it did. Unfortunately in this day and age with everybody downloading instead of buying music, I don't see this blowing up too much. We'll see what they come up with. :wink:

I think you're mistaking what I've said as my agreeing with what Hagar claimed...I agree 100% that what Hagar said was 'ludicrous,pompous,egotistical and absurd'...no doubt there...personally,I dont think that it'll even become anything at all...and if you're not mistaking what I've said,then cool....my point was that his statement may ring true to non Zepplin fans because they're non Zepplin fans...that was my point. :D

Honestly the only thing this project will have in common with Zeppelin is that its lead singer has blonde curly hair…..THAT’S IT! Maybe Sammy needs to go have another shot of some of his Cabo Wabo Tequila and return to the drunken fantasy world where he is Robert Plant’s equal. :roll:

Well I think most of the cred lies within Satch. Chad, well I'm pretty confident in his groove factor, and well Mike may not be JPJ, but he's earned his name in a legendary band as well. Sammy, well of course he's no plant because I don't think he has the respectable range and persona. I'll take me some Montrose era Hagar doing "Space Station No. 5" any day of the week though. Like I said I think the statement is ridiculous as well, I just love playing devil's advocate for the sake of conversation.

Here's the latest:


According to the Van Halen News Desk, CHICKENFOOT — the new supergroup featuring guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, singer Sammy Hagar (ex-VAN HALEN), bassist Michael Anthony (ex-VAN HALEN), and drummer Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), will release its self-titled debut CD in either April or May. The first single might be either "Oh, Yeah!" or "Bitten By The Wolf". The band's tour in support of the CD will kick off in May, warming up in smaller venues (possibly clubs) in the USA, followed by a few weeks in Europe during the summer. Then the band will return to the USA for a larger headlining tour this fall. The band is planning on performing the entire CD as well as songs from each of the bandmembers' careers. So, expect to hear some classics from VAN HALEN, Sammy Hagar, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, and some blazin' Joe Satriani instrumentals!

Joe Satriani, Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony give Guitar World magazine the scoop on CHICKENFOOT. This will be the June issue, which hits the streets on April 7.

Satch is really the only reason I'm interested in this. Iron's comments about Zep vs. Chicken (salad?) are so true. :roll:

By judging the title of the songs "Oh Yeah" and "Bitten By the f**king Wolf" I can assure that this won't touch Zeppelin in any way. And really, I don't mind Satch, but he can't really move from his solo stuff imo, his appearance in the G3 jams is as boring as anything. Sorry, I don't want to bash on him, but I believe it's not gonna work out good. :oops:
