Subscribers of the Satriani.com mailing list were sent this message from Joe this week:
“It’s hard to believe Chickenfoot’s 2009 is coming to a close. The gig in Vegas was fantastic, and a great way to end the touring year.
Cheers to all our fans for making every show not only possible, but memorable and fun. And, I want to thank all my fans at satriani.com and around the world for cutting me some slack and letting be be in a rock band for a while. Your patience with me is amazing, and not for a second do I ever forget it.
I wish I could share the Chickenfoot Gold Record award hanging on my wall with all of you. They should send one to everyone who bought the album! That would cost about a million smackers, but, I might be able to get a government grant for it… I’ll work on that…
Looking ahead we have a NAMM show in January with a cool new 24 fret JS guitar to unveil, and a February 2nd release of “Joe Satriani, I Just Wanna Rock, Live in Paris” DVD, The Jimi Hendrix Tribute Tour in March, and some Chickenfoot shows in the spring and summer.
It’s gonna be a great year!”
We know that Chickenfoot has been contemplating touring outside the USA in 2010. We don’t know if they are considering playing any US shows next year.
