Joe Satriani Thinks Chickenfoot Will Work On New Music This Year

Chickenfoot recently reunited at the Fillmore in San Francisco for this year’s “Acoustic-4-A-Cure”, and now it looks like new music may be coming in the future as well. During an interview on “Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon”, Joe Satriani said he thinks the group will work on new material this year.

Here’s what Satriani had to say:

“Well, a couple of nights ago, we were on stage at the Fillmore here in San Francisco, and we played a four-song set acoustically. That was crazy; I’m playing CHICKENFOOT songs on acoustic — wow, that’s just crazy. But we had such a good time, and I know we were all wondering what was gonna happen. And the undeniable magic between us was palpable; everybody felt it. And afterwards, everybody said, ‘You guys have to record another record,’ and everybody wanted to do it. So everyone was hugs and smiles and we said, ‘Let’s do it.’ So I was pretty shocked, because it looked like it wasn’t gonna happen this year, but I think it is gonna happen this year. So I think the next step is writing and [seeing] if we can all get in the same city at the same time again for a couple of days. That’s the way the band operates. We never have three months where we rent a chateau in France and record an album; that’ll never happen. It’s here and there, hit the ground running, which I like in a way. It keeps the juices flowing and the spirits up and we don’t waste time. So I think that’s good.”

He also added:

“I’m cool with just doing a record or doing a record and a couple of maybe residencies around the world. I think that whole thing about us touring like JOURNEY or DEF LEPPARD or something like that, CHICKENFOOT, I don’t think, was ever going to do that, because we all have other things we’re doing. But I’ve learned to love it. [Laughs] It’s been frustrating in the past, ’cause I’m so used to touring and I love touring and I love the life and the tour bus and I love travelling. But it’s different, I guess, when you’re a singer. And those guys have accomplished a lot more in their careers than I have, so they have a different set of desires at this point in their lives.”

Sammy Hagar says, “Listening to this collection of songs from the ‘Foot brings back memories of some of the most fun I’ve ever had in a band. The chemistry between Chad, Joe, Mike and me is very special. It’s almost like visual music — you can see us having fun when you listen to these songs.”

Just the way Chickenfoot likes it!”
