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.
Satriani described the band´s musical direction as "high-energy, kick-ass rock´n´roll. We all bring to the table some unusual influences and then we also share a lot of roots. And I think that´s where a true color of a band comes out, just how we react to each other. So, it´s definitely rock music. We haven´t brought each other together to do a techno record."
Hagar recently told Billboard.com about CHICKENFOOT, "We got in the studio and recorded eight demos in two days. The chemistry is everything in a band. The band changes one guy, sometimes the whole damn thing changes — look what happened when I joined VAN HALEN. But with this band, the chemistry is awesome. It´s the best chemistry I´ve ever experienced, better than the MONTROSE chemistry, better than the VAN HALEN chemistry."
