Chickenfoot tease with audio, still called Chickenfoot


Chickenfoot - aka the Sammy Hagar-led supergroup with Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani and Chad Smith - has finally posted a taster of the "kick ass rock'n'roll" they've been working on.

Don't get too excited: it is literally just a few seconds-worth of an intro. You can hear a Joe Satriani riff, which Sammy Hagar playfully shouts over the top of.

Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith recently told MusicRadar that his new band were open to suggestions for a new name, citing Chickenfoot as a temporary solution. 'The Nine' was pondered for a while, but with the words 'Chickenfoot: coming 2009' adorning the all-new website, it's probably safe to say they're sticking with the former.
