Guitarist Joe Satriani recently spoke to GuitarInternational on the state of Chickenfoot's as-yet-to-be-recorded third album. It turns out that the band is having a hard time finding a break in the band member's individual schedules to fit in recording sessions.
According to Satriani it might take almost a whole year before they have time to do some recording: "All I can tell you is that we had a pretty tasty dinner the other night, Chad Smith, Sammy Hagar, and myself. We were having a good time and I think we came to the realization is that it would be really hard to find some time in the next nine months to do a record. But we are committed to figuring it out."
Chad Smith is currently busy with Red Hot Chili Peppers, who are playing sporadic dates throughout the fall, while Sammy Hagar is in the process of promoting his new solo album, Sammy Hagar & Friends.
The album contains contributions from all Chickenfoot members, including former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony. Satriani himself is busy touring behind his latest solo release Unstoppable Momentum.
Even though it might take a while before we get some new Chickenfoot songs, the band is far from done, according to Satriani: "I believe there are at least one or two more albums in us as a unit, but finding the time and the city where we can all get together for five days, that’s going to be the trick. We’re working on it right now."
