Chickenfoot posted a 10 minute video from the opening night of the Different Devil 2012 tour. Go inside the soundcheck, show and aftershow of their gig on May 4th in South Lake Tahoe, NV!
Drummer Chad Smith rejoined Chickenfoot onstage for the first time on the tour in support of their latest album, 'Chickenfoot III' on May 16th at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre. Kenny Aronoff has been handling the drumming chores due to Smith’s commitment with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Earlier in the set before Chad jammed with the band, Sammy Hagar made a passing reference to him, joking that, "if Chad was here, I’d kick his ass." After the band left the stage, a man in a Kiss t-shirt and backwards baseball cap sat down behind Aronoff’s drums. The fans then realized that it was Smith, and went nuts.
The band proceeded to jam on 'Oh Yeah’, after which Hagar turned to Smith and said, "Chad, you haven’t had this much fun all year and you know it." They then broke into a cover of Jimi Hendrix‘s 'Foxy Lady' with a bit of 'Manic Depression' thrown in. That was followed by 'Different Devil,' then a tribute to the late Ronnie Montrose with a cover of 'Rock Candy,' with Aronoff helping out on the cymbols.
Chickenfoot posted some rehearsal footage earlier this week of a rocking performance of "Up Next' from the Chickenfoot III album. Somebody named Nigel takes the spot of Joe Satriani and a mohawked Kenny Aronoff's channels a New Yorker alter ego, joining Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony in getting ready for the 'Different Devil' U.S. summer tour with Black Stone Cherry in the support slot. Chickenfoot kick it all off tonight and tomorrow at Harrah's in Lake Tahoe, with BSC joining the Foot on May 9th at The Fillmore in Denver, Colorado, rolling through until June 10th at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
I have only posted two Rock Picks of the Week so far this year, and with this only being the third, expect another before a week is up. I will try and catch up accordingly since there is some good rock out there to choose from right now. Cinncinnati, Ohio's Foxy Shazam starts us off with the track 'I Like It'. It come from the band's fourth studio album 'The Church of Rock N' Roll.'
The band consists of lead vocalist Eric Sean Nally, guitarist Loren Turner, pianist Sky White, bass player Daisy, trumpeter and back-up vocalist Alex Nauth and Aaron McVeigh on drums. Foxy Shazam kicked off 2012 touring the U.S. with a band they have been compared to, The Darkness, and now they will continue with their own 'Tabernacle Tour 2012.' I also hear a heavy Queen influence.
The band name originated from a slang phrase used by students at vocalist Eric Sean Nally's high school. "Foxy shazams" meant 'cool shoes'. (e.g. "Those are some foxy shazams!").
The track 'I Like It' grabs you from the get-go, and never lets loose. It's flying up the charts, already close to Top 10, and almost a lock for Top 5! Welcome to the Church of Rock N' Roll, Let the Pary Begin!
Check out this Artisan News report on the band:
Chickenfoot are up next with their latest single 'Different Devil.' The band are getting ready to reconvene and hit the road for what is sure to be a kick ass U.S. tour of the same name with opening act Black Stone Cherry.
After the brief “Road Test” tour of clubs, the "Different Devil Tour 2012' will be the first major tour since the latest album's release. Kenny Aronoff will continue to handle the drumming duties for Chad Smith, as he is early on in his committment to his other band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony have the harmonies we're all accustomed to going on this track, the third single from the latest 'Chickenfoot III' album.

On April 10, Pennsylvania rockers Halestorm will release their sophomore album, 'The Strange Case of...', which has a huge buzz behind it. The follow up the successful 2009 debut album was produced by Howard Benson (Skillet, Three Days Grace, Black Stone Cherry, 3 Doors Down, Theory Of A Deadman, Daughtry, Art Of Dying).
Vocalist Lzzy Hale has become one of the distinct female voices in rock, and carries the torch for the next generation of women. This latest project is going to open up many new ears and eyes to Lzzy and Halestorm. The first single from the new album, 'Love Bites (So Do I)', is already Top 20 Rock track, and looks destined for the Top 10 at the very least.
"The song is my little stab against the media's portrayal of love," Hale told Noisecreep. "Your heart cannot be measured or judged by the quizzes in magazines and scenes in movies. So for both boys and girls I tell you this, love who and how you want, and for god's sake when love bites, bite back! That bitch can eat her heart out!"
"The guys gave me carte blanche to write about whatever I wanted, so a lot of personal stuff came out. Open up those floodgates! We've been living two feet from each other forever now, so a lot has happened - and I will add that my guys, musically, totally blew me away."

Minneapolis, Minnesota's New Medicine have had a fantastic run with their latest album "Race You To the Bottom,' which was released in late 2010. They had a top 50 rock track from it last year with 'Laid' and now have a Top 25 rock track with the title track. The band will be getting some big time exposure as they earned an opening slot for the first leg of the Avalanche tour, opening for Shinedown and Adelitas Way starting March 27th in Anaheim, Ca.
Kenny Wayne Shepherd is back with another single from his latest 'How I Go' album. 'Come On Over' continues Kenny's solid streak of rock tracks. He definetly deserves more airplay. Hopefully he'll get it with this one.

Joe Satriani and Michael Anthony of Chickenfoot talk “Up Next”, Anthony sells Southern California Home
The Los Angeles Times reports that Chickenfoot bassist Michael Anthony has sold his home in Glendora for $1.77 million. The custom-built Tudor, which the musician bought new in 1989, sits on more half an acre with a beach-entry saltwater swimming pool and hidden rock slide built into the hillside. The 7,100-square-foot home features a double-island kitchen with a 140-gallon fish tank, guest quarters with a separate entry and a six-car garage. There are five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
Anthony, 57, played with the rock band Van Halen for two decades starting in the mid-'70s. Chickenfoot released its second album, Chickenfoot III, last month. Offstage, Anthony is a hot rod enthusiast. Property records show he paid $971,220 for the house.
Joe Satriani and Michael Anthony of Chickenfoot sat down with ARTISTdirect.com to exclusively discuss the song "Up Next" from the new "Chickenfoot III" album for their "See the Music" series.
Satriani recalled the genesis of the song, saying, "The riff...I started that on a Chickenfoot tour. I was carrying that riff around and I made a demo of it, sent it to the guys and one day it just came up again."
The song had even more buoyancy since it was one of "Carter's favorites," with Carter being frontman Sammy Hagar's personal manager and one of Chickenfoot's managers, who passed away while the record was being recorded. Carter had been pushing for the song to be on the record. Check out this segment of "See the Music." artistdirect.com
