LOS ANGELES, CA…November 4, 2009—Chickenfoot, 2009’s stand out rock collaboration comprised of guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith, and Van Halen front man Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony were named “Best New Band” at Classic Rock Magazine’s annual awards ceremony in London on November 2nd.

Chickenfoot just completed a 30-city cross-country US Tour in support of their debut album. The band made their first ever TV performing appearance during the first week of The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien on Friday, June 5th. The album is an 11-song slab of raging rock,” says writer Joe Bosso of Guitar World magazine. Chickenfoot is produced by Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones) and mixed by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica). The band’s first single, “Oh Yeah,” has been embraced by radio. It has proven to be a true multi-format smash, topping both the mainstream and classic rock charts at #1, as well as charting in active rock.
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
