Former Van Halen members Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and Joe Satriani have joined forces to create a 'supergroup' called Chickenfoot.
Chad Smith, who got involved with the project when he moved close to Sammy Hagar's house in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, said: "If you're in Cabo, of course you know Sammy 'cause he's, you know, he rules the joint and he's a really nice man, he's a great guy actually. Somehow he's taken a liking to me, and we played in Vegas, and we played some cover songs - we're a good cover band now. He got pretty excited about it and it actually sounded really good. Him and Joe (Satriani) got together up at his place and they wrote like five things together, and we'll see."
Sammy Hagar has also spoke out about the project, saying "We've written eight, nine songs...when people hear the music, it's Led Zeppelin. It's as good as that. I know that's a mighty bold statement...we could rival Zep."
