Chickenfoot's Deep Purple Tribute Cover Happened By Accident
Satriani explains: "We started our first tour and we were threatening to play it. I don't think Sammy wanted to do it – he'd never really memorised the lyrics. Somebody printed them up and threw them on the stage. At the beginning of the song you hear me starting up Bad Motor Scooter because that's what was on the setlist.
"Chad Smith, in a most mischievous way, started playing Highway Star, so I had to kind of segue into it. I think for the second verse, Sammy is literally on his hands and knees reading the lyrics." [Music Radar]
