CHICKENFOOT Bassist Interviewed At ‘Mark And Brian Christmas Show’

CHICKENFOOT performed at this year’s Mark And Brian Christmas Show on December 15 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Singer Sammy Hagar kicked things off with a rousing rendition of “Santa’s Going South For Christmas” with the MARK AND BRIAN ALL-STAR BAND. Guitarist Joe Satriani later teamed up with the ALL-STAR BAND to perform “Satch Boogie” before Sammy and bassst Michael Anthony took the stage to play “Poundcake” and “I Can’t Drive 55”. CHICKENFOOTthen hit the stage together, performing a four-song set that had the crowd at the sold-out theater on its feet and pumping its fists.

A pre-show interview with Anthony conducted by KLOS rock reporter Sal Cirrincione can be seen below.

As top-rated syndicated morning show personalities, Mark Thompson and Brian Phelps of the Los Angeles-based “Mark And Brian Show” entertain audiences live with their dauntless comedy weekday mornings from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
