Joe Satriani Sees More Albums in Chickenfoot’s Future

Good news for Chickenfoot fans, as guitar god Joe Satriani told Guitar International that the supergroup are determined to record another album. Scheduling issues, however, are the main reason recording new songs isn’t exactly planned anytime soon.

Satriani and fellow members Chad Smith and Sammy Hagar had dinner at Hagar’s El Paseo restaurant and discussed the band’s status. Although Satriani sees “one or two” more Chickenfoot albums in the future, the main challenge is to coordinating everyone’s schedules wherein they could jam for five days straight and record new material.

“We’re working on it right now,” said Satriani. “Sam’s focused on his new album, I’m right in the middle of my touring cycle, and I think Chad still has a bunch of big shows with the Chili Peppers that he’s got to get to every few months.” Fellow member Michael Anthony has also popped up on Sammy Hagar’s tour this year, so none of the musicians have a ton of free time on their hands.

Talk of a third Chickenfoot album has been mulled about since February, and Satriani added that it may be another nine months before the group sit down to record new any new music. The band’s last album, ‘Chickenfoot III,’ came out in 2011.

Satriani, whose book ‘Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir’ comes out April 2014, starts up the North American leg of his ‘Unstoppable Momentum’ tour¬†on Aug. 29 in San Diego (Balboa Theatre).
