Here's the third part of 3 "Making Of Chickenfoot III" videos posted by the band. Great job of buildup to the new album release this Tuesday (Sept. 27)
Michael Anthony says Chickenfoot would open for Van Halen, Sammy Hagar to get Milley Award in October
The first single from the new Chickenfoot III album (due Sept. 27) called "Big Foot" is out now. The band is currently searching for a tour replacement drummer for Chad Smith, since he will be committed to Red Hot Chili Peppers for at least a year. Chickenfoot will tour behind the new album, probably as the headlining band, but I guess you never know.
Bassist Michael Anthony recently commented about the new Van Halen and Chickenfoot album coming out withing a couple of months of each other (hopefully). Micheal said "I know people, from the fans and the critics, they'll all be doing the heavy comparison thing and you know what, I'd be lying if I didn't say, 'Yeah, sure I'm interested to hear what a new album, you know, what they got happening.' But I'm very proud of what we've done and I don't mind at all. They can put their album out before, after, or on the same day. They want to go out on tour, we'll open up for them, I don't care. [laughs]"
Anthony hasn't spoken to any of the members of Van Halen since the end of the band's 2004 tour. He said earlier this year, "The tour did not end as harmoniously as we would have liked it to and it probably should have gone on longer than it did." Still, Anthony wouldn't be against having his band Chickenfoot open for Van Halen should they go on tour — "I got no problem with that," he said.
Anthony last year said that Eddie and Alex Van Halen hold a grudge against him for maintaining a friendship with Sammy Hagar. Anthony recalled to Mojo, that the problems started between him and the band when in the late '90s, Van Halen once again tried unsuccessfully to bring David Lee Roth back into the fold. With Van Halen seemingly on hiatus, Hagar had called Anthony to see if he was interested in hooking up with him and Neal Schon in their side project Planet US.
Sammy Hagar is one of 7 residents of Mill Valley, California – a part of Marin County – to receive a 2011 Milley Award.
The Milleys were created by Abby Wasserman in 1988 to honor one local person a year for their creative achievements. By 1995, the Art Commission realized that Mill Valley suffered from an overwhelming abundance of great artists, and expanded the event to include five recipients. The 2011 Milley Awards ceremony will take place on October 23.
Rock Picks of the Week: Chickenfoot, Jane’s Addiction (plus full 3D LG concert), Rise Against, ZZ Top, Papa Roach
The supergroup featuring Sammy Hagar, guitar wizard Joe Satriani, ex-Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith that started as a tequila-soaked jam session in Mexico and went on to sell 500,000 copies of its 2009 debut LP are back with the new track "Big Foot".
It's from the upcoming album "Chickenfoot III", produced by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica). The album will be released on September 27. The band may tour in November, but it will have to find another drummer. Chad Smith is busy with the red Hot Chili Peppers. Chickenfoot have auditioned numerous drummers, but have not made a decision on who will be pounding the skins for them on tour as of yet.

I am really feeling the new Jane's Addiction track ""Irresistible Force". The song is now available through all digital outlets, comes from the band's new album, "The Great Escape Artist" on Capitol Records. It marks the first new studio album by in eight years by Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro and Stephen Perkins. "The Great Escape Artist" it is due out Tuesday, September 27.

Coming off Rise Against's performance at the epic L.A. Rising Festival with Rage Against The Machine, Tom Morello & Tim McIlrath of Rise Against have joined forces for The Justice Tour. The tour will bring them to Madison, WI, Cleveland, OH and Flint, MI this September with all profits benefiting The Nation Institute. Tom Morello stated, "This year’s Justice Tour aims to support independent media which is battling the mountain of disinformation and propaganda foisted on the public by right wing media barons. We will also return to the union battlegrounds of the Midwest to help steel the backbone of workers under siege." Tim McIlrath added, “Playing with Tom on the steps of the Capitol building in Madison last February was an inspiring experience. I can’t wait to join him again for such an important cause. Media has become a battleground, and we're out to even the odds.”

Here's the new ZZ Top track "Flyin' High". ZZ Top have been working on their new album with producer Rick Rubin, and it will be released before the end of the year.
“It sounds and feels like ‘Tres Hombres,’ with a few elements of the ‘Eliminator’ period thrown in,” says Billy Gibbons. “A pretty wide range, from basic blues to slightly more fancy stuff.” ZZ Top recorded at Shangri La Studios in Malibu, California with engineer Dave Sardy (Oasis, Jet). The trio then moved back to Texas, to Foam Box Recordings in Houston, with long-time engineer Joe Hardy. "It was the Sardy and Hardy party," added Gibbons.
It's good to have ZZ Top back with a new track. It is what you would expect from the trio, and I like the sound of it. Hooking up with Rick Rubin on this project has given ZZ Top a new determination and motivation. Check it out:
ZZ Top continue on tour through August and September. ZZ Top's website is currently under construction, so get the dates here.
Papa Roach have released the third track from their latest album "Time For Annihilation", called "No Matter What". The Vacaville, California rockers have had a successful run with this album, getting significant airplay with previous tracks "Kick In The Teeth" and "Burn".
