“Big Foot” is the new Chickenfoot tune being release to radio (what’s that? lol) today, and…I like it! The #1 reason: MARSHALL. You can hear a big difference, an evolution from Joe Satriani’s big round solo-artist tone to a more rock tone – harsher (in a good way), less bassy/muddy (in a band setting), more [...]
…But Still No Intel About Joe and Peavey Is Joe Satriani a Marshall man now? Has he forsaken Peavey or not? To bring you up to speed, here’s a brief, recent history of Joe Satriani’s amps:
Still Using Peaveys, No Talk of Marshalls GuitarCenter.com just put up a good interview with Chickenfoot, which, while documenting yet again the great chemistry these four guys have, also gets into the gear they use, notably Satch and Michael Anthony. As you will read, Satch only talks about his Peavey JSX signature amps. There’s no [...]
The following is from an entry on Brian May’s blog, edited for brevity: “For those who like to ROCK – in a classic grassroots, frig-off, out-and-out real way – this is the new album you have to get. “Chickenfoot are a new California ‘super group’ of wondrous musicians having a ball together and playing REAL [...]
Seems like someone at Guitar Center had the common sense to grab a videocam and get Joe Satriani to talk about his pedals. And talk Satch does. He says why he likes each one, what settings he uses, what the pedals can do, even the order (a little) of his signal chain. Sweet! And through [...]
Apparently you can only buy the Chickenfoot CD at Best Buy, which is distributing the disc, because I must have tried everywhere else on Friday and Saturday (didn’t pass any Best Buys). Luckily amazon.com was offering the whole disc for a $3.99 download. Sold! – and incidentally, this is the first time I bought an [...]
Update: A walk-through of Joe Satriani’s pedalboard here What would you do if you were just diagnosed with borderline walking peneumonia, hadn’t been getting enough sleep, lived a good hour outside of swine-flu New York City – and a buddy got tickets to see Chickenfoot at the Fillmore in NYC? You would freakin’ go! So [...]
Joe: Mike is F-ing Great Following are some hastily transcribed excerpts of MusicRadar.com’s four-part radio interview with Joe Satriani, Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony of Chickenfoot. These are what I consider the most interesting parts – and they are interesting – but if you’re an out-and-out fan, you’ll want to give all four segments a [...]
Here they are: Soap on a Rope, and Down the Drain. I like ‘em. Like that I can hear all the instruments. Live, I’m betting it’s even better. Enjoy. Via the player at www.chickenfoot.us Via Chickenfoot’s MySpace page
Check out yesterday’s Chickenfoot update too Update courtesy of VHND.com (pic is courtesy of John Cuniberti’s website): Joe Satrianai recently described Chickenfoot’s music to Billboard.com 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 [...]
If anyone still hasn’t heard of this band, Chickenfoot basically is the second incarnation of Van Halen with Joe Satriani instead of Edward Van Halen and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer) instead of Alex – which makes Chickenfoot’s new CD one of the most anticipated new discs ever. The members of this band [...]
Here’s the latest from the Satriani-Hagar-Anthony-Chad Smith supergroup, now officially named Chickenfoot. You get to see them, the new logo and hear a little bit more music. Note: To play the vid, mouse over the lower left of it and you will see the play symbol come up.
Plus Sammy skull-cracks just about everybody (Dave, Eddie, Slash, Ronnie Montrose, Gary Cherone) – nicely! You may recall that Chickenfoot was the stand-in name, and now looks like the official name, of the Joe Satriani, Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) super group. They said an album and tour were coming [...]
Can anyone get woodytone out of a solid basswood guitar body? Or is this just the worst guitar wood ever? Here’s my ear experience with it. 1. Not even the great EVH can get a true woodytone out of basswood, though he has come close on stage with the EVH Art Series Charvels.
If you missed the issue of Guitar player with Slash on the cover, you missed an interview with Joe Satriani about his new CD — which I will get into later. It’s a decent interview, but the one thing that jumped out at me in screamin’ freakin’ neon is that Satch is jamming with Sammy [...]
