Chickenfoot -- the non-supergroup made up of Joe Satriani, Sammy Hagar, Chad Smith and Michael Anthony -- will record their Phoenix show at Dodge Theatre this Wednesday for use in a possible DVD. The band's first single, "Oh Yeah," is the No. 1 single on the classic rock charts (who knew there was such a thing?) and #3
on the mainstream rock charts. The show has impressed at least one critic, writing for the Star Tribune in Minnesota:
"Suddenly, it felt like 1986 all over again. Hagar, 61, was unstoppable,
flexing his voice and muscles on "Turnin' Left" as Satriani, 53, showed
off his flashy technique, playing more blues than he typically does with
his own band."
