Chickenfoot Not Worth Sammy Hagar's Time Says Satriani

(Classic Rock) Joe Satriani believes his Chickenfoot bandmates have given up on writing another album because they think it's too difficult. And that leaves the guitarist bewildered - and tired of trying to change their minds.

He's previously discussed how he thinks the supergroup has run out of steam after two records because singer Sammy Hagar, bassist Michael Anthony and drummer Chad Smith have lost focus.

Former Van Halen men Hagar and Anthony are concentrating on covers band The Circle, while Smith continues work with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Satriani says of Hagar: "I don't think he believes that making original music is worth his time any more - which is kind of sad. I just don't get that part of it."

And he emphasizes: "A band I thought really had a future is calling it quits because they think it's too difficult. I don't understand that." Read more here.
