Chickenfoot

There are alot of big releases and new albums in the works for 2009(U2, Linkin Park, Pearl Jam) But my curiosity is piqued the most by Chickenfoot. Sammy Hagar and his former Van Halen mate, Michael Anthony on bass. Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers on drums, and some hack(sic) named Joe Satriani on guitar. They are recording now and promise a spring release and tour. I'm sure Sammy and Michael will let loose now that they are not under the iron psychotic fist of Edward Van Halen. And Joe Satriani in a "rock" band format could lessen some pressure and inhibitions now that his name is not in the forefront.  All of these guys are well established and have nothing to lose. Doing it for fun. Check out the clip below.
