Satriani Excited By New Chickenfoot Sounds

(Gibson) It's hard enough getting four musicians together at any given time to get work done. But when those four musicians are world-class players with outside bands and solo work to take into account, sometimes it can be downright difficult. Case in point: Chickenfoot, the hard rock supergroup featuring Van Halen alums Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, Red Hot Chili Pepper Chad Smith and guitar deity Joe Satriani. With the Red Hit Chili Peppers' calendar bearing down on the band, they are knuckling down to crank out the follow-up to the group's self-titled debut album.

"The pressure's on, I guess," Satriani told MusicRadar.com. "We're making this record very quickly. Our debut album was also recorded quickly, but as a group we did it in stages. We couldn't do that this time."

Satriani believes that the pressure of finishing the album has created a lot of positively channeled energy. "I finished my Black Swans tour, knowing that we would have Chad for only a certain amount of time because of the Chili Peppers," he said. "So we had to meet up and blast through the tracks, which resulted in a terrific amount of energy and enthusiasm. It's like we were bottled up for so long, just waiting and waiting to get together to make this record. This isn't going to be a laid-back album by any means. It kicks pretty hard." more on this story
