Legendary guitarist Joe Satriani has confirmed that CHICKENFOOT appears tofinally be dead, with all four members of the band focusing on other projects for the foreseeable future.
The group, which also included former VAN HALEN singer Sammy Hagar, ex-VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith, has not made a CD in four years and Hagar told Rolling Stone last year that there were no plans to work on a new one in the near future. He explained, “I love making music. But doing it on CHICKENFOOT’s level means spending a half million on a record. We write and record for six months. It’s a lot of work, and then to not sell many records, it’s disappointing. I don’t like being disappointed. I like winning.”
