Satriani Records New Solo Album
Joe Satriani is about to start working on a new solo album – and he says a new Chickefoot record should be released in 2011.
The guitarist, who is also a member of Chickenfoot, will be working on his solo release with bassist Allen Whitman, keyboard player Mike Keneally and drummer Jeff Campitelli.
Once this is finished, Satriani aims to do dates in the UK and Europe, probably towards the end of the year.
Satch has also been talking about the likelihood of a new Chickenfoot album.
“We’re all determined to keep this thing going,” he told MusicRadar. “We might not always have [drummer] Chad [Smith] available as often as we’d like, but we’ll get this next record done.
“I think people can definitely expect a new Chickenfoot record in 2011. We’ll start recording in earnest right after he’s done with the Chili Peppers album, which will be in the fall.”
Regarding Chickenfoot’s new material, the guitarist added:
“A few are big-time rockers, which we love to play. But we do have something that’s quite different and I’m pretty excited about it. For the first time I wrote a song to Sammy’s [Hagar's] lyrics.”
