On October 5, Barbara Caserta of Italian web radio Linearock.it conducted an interview with CHICKENFOOT/ex-VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
CHICKENFOOT‘s sophomore album, “III”, sold 42,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s self-titled debut opened with 49,000 units back in June 2009 to debut at No. 6.
“III” was produced by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, METALLICA) and is the much-anticipated follow-up album to the successful eponymous debut of a rock band packed with successful veterans — guitar hero Joe Satriani, drummer Chad Smith, former VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony and frontman Sammy Hagar.
“Chickenfoot III” features 10 tracks with so many moments of epiphany that one can barely take them all in on first listen. Colossal, stadium-shaking riffs abound on earth-movers such as “Alright, Alright”, “Last Temptation”, “Bigfoot” and “Lighten Up”.
