The guys take a moment out of a show to record a Thank You for being selected as “BEST NEW BAND” at the Classic Rock Awards 2009:
Chickenfoot has also received critical success:
“Hagar and Satriani have embedded plenty of hooks and compact solos in these tunes, and the refreshingly agile rhythm section motors them along.” — USA Today
“Chickenfoot’s self-titled debut favors straight-ahead rockers like the single “Oh Yeah” or the blues-fed “Sexy Little Thing,” and “Soap on a Rope” sounds like a Led Zeppelin outtake sent back from the year 2019.” –Billboard”
The album is an 11-song slab of raging rock.” –Guitar World
Also, dont’ forget Chickenfoot on TV tonight! Chickenfoot will be performing “Sexy Little Thing” and “Oh Yeah” on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Friday, November 6th.
