Van Hagar Supergroup Member Speaks

(antiMusic) There is a buzz building about the new supergroup comprised of former Van Halen rockers Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony plus Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith. With such a lineup it would be almost impossible to find a player to fill the guitar god role that is expected. But the band hit one out of the park when they recruited Joe Satriani as their final member. Our good friend Ross CAT from Bestofwny.com spoke with Satch about all of the things he has on his plate at the moment including this new group and their plans. Here is part of that conversation where Satch is asked about this still nameless group:

Satch: Yeah I guess I'd have to say I'm surprised at how people are jumping all over this thing but I guess I shouldn't be. We had spent some time playing together on stage and we really clicked as a band. Sammy and I have written 2 albums worth of material already and we will be heading into my studio to polish up the arrangements in a few days.

Needless to say it's a really high energy band as you can imagine; Sammy alone is a volcano ready to erupt at any time and Mike and Chad are always ready to jump in. It's been a fantastic few months for me on so many levels especially having a specific band to write music for, they are a bunch of talented guys who really just want to Rock Hard.

I know Sammy took some heat for a comment that was taken just a little to serious when he compared this band to Led Zeppelin. As a musician when your influenced by bands like Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix and you've played with bands like Van Halen and the Red Hot Chili Peppers it's interesting to see where you go when you step outside of that. This project is a musical release, its given us a uniquely creative outlet which has generated a combustible intensity that is very exciting. I'm looking forward to finally getting this thing down on tape as they say.
