Guitar - Joe Satriani (solo, mostly)
Vocals - Sammy Hagar (Van Halen)
Bass - Michael Anthony (Van Halen)
Drums - Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers)

Oh Yeah - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoT8KewKb8k

Down the Drain - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_EMFYrZVrw

Soap on a Rope - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HX-OwmvuBjA&feature=related

Those are the three released songs from their upcoming album so far. Looking at that lineup, I'd have expected some really groundbreaking shit, but it sounds mostly just like old hard rock. Nothing new or really interesting, but I really like them. The riff on Down the Drain reminds me of Runnin' with the Devil at the very first.

Sammy Hagar's voice is awesome, but the guy is in his sixties, and some of his lyrics are just kind of embarassing coming from him at that age. Critics tend to be kind of hard on supergroups, and I imagine that's one of the foremost things that will be attacked.

Yes, with that lineup I'd be expecting something groundbreakingly shitty too.

Can't argue with that.

Gotta show some respect for the Satch, though.

Sammy rules, he is better that David, who is lame by the way at this age.

The instrumentals are nice, but I really hate Sammy's voice. 2/4 of the group I like...but Sammy's bad...and MC was in VH. I hate VH.

Really, really bland. Which is extremely unfortunate, because Satch is probably the best musician going at the minute. And I don't mean he can play fast guitar, I mean he is a fucking exceptional musician.

Yeah, I know. I kind of had higher hopes, but it's not so bad I can't listen to it. I read somewhere that Hagar said Chickenfoot was as good as Led Zeppelin, which is just facepalm.

lol...

Well... is average. I mean Chad is a solid drummer, Anthony is a veteran bass player, satriani... I hate him, and Haggar rules... but this isn't that goo

Kind of old news, but have you guys heard about Satriani suing Coldplay for plagiarism?

Haha, that's pretty uncanny. I'm not sure I'd say they ripped him off. It's mostly that one part. Listen to Stone temple Pilots rip Danzig off:

I think I still like the STP song more, though.

Joe Satriani gave Conan his guitar. That was awesome.

Band kind of sucked though.
