Chickenfoot is a rock band featuring vocalist Sammy Hagar (ex-Van Halen and Montrose), bassist Michael Anthony (ex-Van Halen), guitarist Joe Satriani and drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers). Chickenfoot has completed an album that was released on June 5, 2009.

Now I'm not a huge Van Halen fan. But I have a lot of respect for Satriani and Smith. Their debut album is just ... fun. It has a lot of echoes of Van Halen when they didn't suck, face it, David Lee Roth was complete garbage. Now I am NOT a hair metal or glam rock fan...

...but this album isn't either of those. Seems like these four guys are actually interested in making good music.

If you're a rock fan or just get nostalgic for having a bunch of great musicians get together and make a good album, hit up the debut album of Chickenfoot.

    Great to see you back, Chef!

    I will admit that I did love Van Halen with Roth. I stopped listening to them once he was kicked out.

    Chickenfoot sounds pretty good.

    Boy...could there be any more compression on the cymbals? Sounds like they're being squeezed through a toothpaste tube. Maybe the digital audio has something to do with it, I dunno.

    That aside, it's not my cup of tea but those guys are pros, and I respect that.
