A seven-minute video clip in which Sammy Hagar (CHICKENFOOT, VAN HALEN, MONTROSE) answers questions that were submitted by fans via his Facebook page can be seen below.
Sammy Hagar revealed in a new holiday video message that CHICKENFOOT will take 2013 off to focus on other projects. He said: “Joe‘s [Satriani, CHICKENFOOT guitarist] doing his thing and Chad‘s [Smith, CHICKENFOOT drummer] just coming off a [RED HOT] CHILI PEPPERS tour and he’s not gonna wanna go into the studio. So I think Mikey [CHICKENFOOT/ex-VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony] and I and the WABOS, we’ll just go out and do some stuff.” That “stuff” will likely include “more shows, maybe a proper tour” and possibly even a new record.”
In other news, Hagar will perform at the third-anniversary party of the Cabo Wabo Cantina in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 9,. Wristbands free on a first-come-first-served basis.
