In a recent interview with Morristown 105.5 WDFMA FM’s Terrie Carr, Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony talked about the possible return of his side-band Chickenfoot as well what he thinks about The Circle.
The Chickenfoot was founded by Ex-Van Halen and Montrose Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani, and Chad Smith back in 2008. While the band was quite active from 2008 to 2012, they haven’t released any studio album since Chickenfoot III in 2011 and their Best+Live compilation in 2017.
In his latest interview with WDFMA FM’s Terrie Carr, Michael shared his opinion on the future of Chickenfoot and claimed that the band will do something else in the future and they have plans to record a new album in a near future by praising the times they had with Chad Smith.
Here is what he said:
“I think there’ll definitely be some kind of Chickenfoot [activity] in the future. Sammy (Hagar – vocalist) and I, we talk about it all the time, and I text with Joe (Satriani – guitarist) and Chad (Smith – drummer) all the time, if we’re not speaking. And I know Joe really wants to do it.”
It’s kind of funny, ’cause we start doing The Circle thing, and Sammy gets all enamored with The Circle. He’s all, ‘Oh, yeah. It’s The Circle this and that.’ But you never know. He might wake up tomorrow and go, ‘Oh my God. Chickenfoot — let’s do a Chickenfoot gig.“
“I definitely think that Chickenfoot will do something else. Whether we’ll record another album, which would be great — I’d love to do that. But I’d love to just together and even just do some shows — do a bunch of shows with those guys. ‘Cause that’s actually some of the best times I’ve ever had on the road. Believe me — touring with Chad Smith is like touring with no other.”
“Even hanging out with Chad since he’s been sober, he’s still crazier than some of the ost crazy people I know. But we definitely have a great time. And I definitely feel that we’ll get… if not to record some new stuff, hopefully in the near future to at least get together and play some shows together.”
