Could Chickenfoot be able to head into the studio without Chad Smith? It sounds very much like that could be the case…

That's according to the band's poodle-haired, tequila loving frontman Sammy Hagar anyway. Hagar told the Pulse of Radio that Chad's Chili Peppers schedule could get in the way of the 'Foot's plans.

He said: "To me, Chad is Chickenfoot. But Chad's, you know, the Chili Peppers are, they've been writing for a year and they haven't even started recording, and I just don't see a window now.

"'Cause once they start recording, Chad's never gonna be able to get a break, and then when they're done with that, they're gonna go out on the road for a year and a half. So we really don't know what to do right now, but I think we're gonna probably play with a few different guys and see what happens."

So, who would you like to see step in for Chad? Let us know below…
