Michael Anthony Promises More Chickenfoot Projects


Michael Anthony is confident that fans have yet to see the last of his and Sammy Hagar's supergroup, Chickenfoot, according to Blabbermouth. During a recent chat with New Jersey's WDHA, the legendary Van Halen bassist spoke about further work between him, Hagar, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, and guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani. He said, “I think there'll definitely be some kind of Chickenfoot (activity) in the future. Sammy and I, we talk about it all the time, and I text with Joe and Chad all the time, if we're not speaking. And I know Joe really wants to do it.”

He went on to say that despite not playing together since 2018, Sammy Hagar hasn't forgotten about the group: “It's kind of funny, 'cause we start doing the Circle thing, and Sammy gets all enamored with the Circle. He's all, 'Oh, yeah. It's the Circle this and that.' But you never know. He might wake up tomorrow and go, 'Oh my God. Chickenfoot — let's do a Chickenfoot gig.'”

Anthony feels confident that Chickenfoot will rise again in some fashion: “I definitely think that Chickenfoot will do something else. Whether we'll record another album, which would be great — I'd love to do that. But I'd love to just together and even just do some shows do a bunch of shows with those guys. 'Cause that's actually some of the best times I've ever had on the road. Believe me — touring with Chad Smith is like touring with no other. . . Even hanging out with Chad since he's been sober, he's still crazier than some of the most crazy people I know.”

He went on to say: “But we definitely have a great time. And I definitely feel that we'll (get together), if not to record some new stuff, hopefully in the near future to at least get together and play some shows together.”

A while back Sammy Hagar told us that Chickenfoot has had a special chemistry from the start that made the band's live show a powerful experience: “There's no room for somebody to be dragging ass in this band. It's like woof, you get out there and I don't care how rough you felt from the night before — some of those days, I mean, waking up, going, 'Oh, lord, we're gonna do a show tonight . . . ' And to get out there and man, the energy hits and you just go, 'Okay, no problem.' Really special chemistry and I just really think that each guy is inspired by the other, and that's chemistry, you know.”
