Joe Satriani says that last week’s Chickenfoot performance at Sammy Hagar‘s annual Acoustic-4-A-Curebenefit in San Francisco could lead to them recording again.
In an interview with Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon, Joe says, “We had such a good time, and I know we were all wondering what was gonna happen. And the undeniable magic between us was palpable; everybody felt it. And afterwards, everybody said, ‘You guys have to record another record,’ and everybody wanted to do it. So everyone was hugs and smiles and we said, ‘Let’s do it.’ So I was pretty shocked, because it looked like it wasn’t gonna happen this year, but I think it is gonna happen this year. So I think the next step is writing and [seeing] if we can all get in the same city at the same time again for a couple of days. That’s the way the band operates. We never have three months where we rent a chateau in France and record an album; that’ll never happen.”
Chickenfoot — which is rounded out by Michael Anthony on bass and Chad Smith on drums — most recently released their second album, Chickenfoot 3, in 2011.
Hagar and Anthony are recording an album with their other band, The Circle.
