I think they sound pretty good, especially compared to a lot of other stuff on the radio right now. I knew Sammy Hagar was in the group but I didn't know about all those other guys. That's a sick lineup.
You know what, i'm a big fan of all four guys and thier respective bands, but these songs feel a little lifeless to me. When I first heard that they were getting together, I was pretty amped. But, so far these songs are just average at best.
The problem with "supergroups" is that the expectations are so high, since the band members are typically known and very accomplished musicians and most often, the music rarely meets those expectations.
I think that is one hell of a lineup for a band, but after listening to one of their songs, I was expecting better from them. Those guys are seasoned vets in the business, I was hoping for something more.
My friend saw them last tuesday and loved them. But then he lives and breathes music and would appreciate the complexity of their songs and shows. He also showed us a video on his camera of Chad Smith handing him a drum stick and Joe Satriani looking at the camera and pointing his gutar head at it whilst sticking his tounge out
I've been jazzed for so long now since I heard rumors they were in the studio. I'm a HUGE Satriani fan and love the old/new VH also. Though I like the Chickenfoot album, Satriani definitely held back on the guitar. He also kept the sound raw for the most part. The more I listen to it, the more I like it. Just have to get used to Satch not going berserk on the guitar. Maybe next album.....
