Thought: Chickenfoot is one of the worst rock bands today…

The lineup isn’t bad… they need to get rid of Sammy Hagar as their lead singer. Sammy is not a good vocalist. He was back in his early 80’s days, but hearing the new stuff he’s doing with Chickenfoot, (which also includes guitar shredder Joe Satriani, Chad Smith of the Chilli Peppers, and Michael Anthony of Van Halen) has not been that great.

Their band name is possibly another one of the stupidest band names I ever heard. Talented musicians, don’t get me wrong, but a lineup like this is way more crazier than James Iha’s other band, Tinted Windows.

How come the lineup of the band, Tinted Windows, is easy targeted and gets made fun of by everyone, yet, Chickenfoot gets a free pass? Chickenfoot is a band full of ego maniac nostalgia has beens while Tinted Windows has a lineup that no one has ever heard of.

Chickenfoot, is horrible and I hope this band fails. Tinted Windows is a much better band than Chickenfoot, in my opinion. Tinted Windows can rock, Chickenfoot can’t.

I think Tinted Windows is one of the best supergroups to ever come around. I will not get the Chickenfoot CD. I’ve been listening to Chickenfoot songs in youtube, and they haven’t been grabbing me, ’cause they don’t have the energy I’m looking for.

I like Joe Satriani but him doing a band with vocals isn’t for him, man.

I wonder how Chickenfoot’s concert at the Palace Theatre in Albany will sell. I’m thinking the Palace will only be half full or maybe less.

Report: Sammy Hagar says yes to John McCain using “Right Now” as theme song…

When John McCain used the Van Halen song in the Sammy Hagar era “Right Now” for his presidential campaign on the night he announced Sarah Palin his running mate for Vice President, Eddie Van Halen himself wasn’t happy about it, saying that the presidential hopeful used the song without the band’s permission. Eddie fired back at McCain saying he had no right to use the song.

TMZ reports:

However, the man that wrote the song himself, Sammy Hagar, responded to Van Halen saying that Sammy is all cool with McCain using the song. Sammy defended the song saying that he wrote the song because “Right Now” is a political song, he says the song is basically about if you want something in life, don’t sit around and go out and get it. The song is about making changes.

“Right Now” is a hit single that was recorded for the album “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge” released back in 1991. The song became one of the biggest Van Halen hits ever made.

Kudos to Sammy, I’m glad he spoke out and stepped in before Eddie threatened lawsuit on McCain. McCain don’t need anymore lawsuits by musicians ’cause he already got one by Jackson Browne. If Sammy Hagar is the one who wrote the music and lyrics to “Right Now”, Sammy owns the copyright, that means David Lee Roth has no control over that song since David Lee Roth was no part of it.
