It’s been a year since CHICKENFOOT released its latest album, “III”, and fans are already wanting more new music from the supergroup.
CHICKENFOOT drummer Chad Smith, who is busy touring with his main band, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, tells VH1 Radio Network‘s Dave Basner that it may be at least twelve months before another CHICKENFOOT CD sees the light of day.
“I just talked to [singer] Sam [Hagar] over the weekend and, you know, [guitarist] Joe [Satriani] is busy doing his thing, he does this guitar [tour], G3 or something, with other guitar players, and they go around. He’s on tour, he’s coming back, I’m going to see him in Oakland next week. And I think he wants to make another solo album and I’m busy through April. [So] maybe next year we’ll get together [to start putting together the third CD].”
“III” sold 42,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s self-titled debut opened with 49,000 units back in June 2009 to debut at No. 6.
CHICKENFOOT‘s most recent touring lineup included legendary drummer/musician Kenny Aronoff, who was filling in for Smith while Chad was on the road with RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS.
