A drum clinic in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, featuring Chad Smith has turned into a international incident when he engaged in a serious breach of local protocol. A new video shows the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chickenfoot drummer pretending to wipe his behind with a soccer jersey.
Recording the new Chickenfoot album is on Joe Satriani's calendar. The guitarist has just finished a solo European tour, but he's also been working on new music for the Sammy Hagar-fronted group. 'Chickenfoot III' was released in September 2011.
Chickenfoot has announced a 20-date 2012 U.S. tour in support of their recent album ‘III.’ The trek, dubbed the “Different Devil Tour 2012,” will kick off May 4 in Lake Tahoe, Nev. and wind up June 10 in Los Angeles, Calif.
Once again, the hard rock world will spend Memorial Day Weekend converging on Pryor, Okla. for the seventh annual Rocklahoma Festival. Earlier today, AEG Live, the promoters of the festival, announced the lineup for the three-day event. As usual, this year’s roster brings together many top present and classic hard rock and metal acts from May 25-27.
