Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

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."

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
