Sammy Hagar says he would love to record a new Chickenfoot album but doesn’t think it will happen soon as everyone in the band is busy with other projects.
Chickenfoot album currently too much work - Hagar
Red Rocker wants to make another Chickenfoot record but says it won’t happen in the foreseeable future
He recently revealed working with The Circle was his main priority – but he now says recording the follow-up to 2011’s Chickenfoot III isn’t out of the question.
He tells Vintage Rock: “I would make another Chickenfoot album but it’s just too much work right now. I love Chickenfoot – it’s my favourite band, but I just don’t see us getting back together and making a record right now. Everybody’s got so much to do.
“Chickenfoot records are difficult because we’ve got to get together, we write and we work, and we write and we work – it’s really, tough.”
The Red Rocker released his first solo acoustic album Lite Roast last month via Mailboat Records and he reveals it took him a week to produce – and says the process was fun and easy.
He continues: “It’s not like I just did an acoustic record of a bunch of old songs and put them in acoustic format. It was fun, it was easy. I did it in a week – I like doing stuff like that.
“That’s where the music industry is to me now. It isn’t about spending a million on a record and selling 125,000 copies. It’s more about doing something you like to do. ‘I’ve got a great song, I’m going to give it to the fans.’ Or, ‘I’m going to put it up on the website and make a video.’ It’s just about experimenting and having fun.”
Earlier this year the band’s axeman Joe Satriani confirmed demos had been made for Chickenfoot’s third album – but said the situation was “chaotic.”
