Chickenfoot featuring Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani and Chad Smith have officially announced that Kenny Aronoff (John Mellancamp, Melissa Etheridge, John Fogerty) will be filling in on drums for upcoming live Chickenfoot shows. Chad Smith, who’s commitment to the Red Hot Chili Peppers won’t allow for him to do double duty with both bands, delivers the news that Kenny will be touring with the ‘Foot’.

In other news, the band have announced a very special release-day free live webcast event that will happen on September 27th. More details to be announced soon.

Sammy Hagar said that Aronoff was Smith’s personal choice, saying, “Chad picked him because he said Kenny’s just like him. He beats his drum set to death. He doesn’t play them. He beats them to death. At the end of every show you have to buy a new drum set for these guys. We need that power.”

Hagar told, “We tried [Kenny]. He’s fucking great. He’s really solid, and he’s got fire.”

Chickenfoot’s second album, “Chickenfoot III”, will be released September 27 via eOne Music in a special 3D designed package.
