Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘Big Name’ Reunion Teased


Michael Anthony has indicated that his supergroup with Red Hot Chili Peppers dummer Chad Smith, Sammy Hagar, and Joe Satriani will reunite.

He told Terrie Carr of the Morristown, New Jersey radio station 105.5 WDHA, “I think there’ll definitely be some kind of Chickenfoot [activity] in the future. Sammy and I, we talk about it all the time, and I text with Joe and Chad all the time, if we’re not speaking. And I know Joe really wants to do it.

Michael, who has spent most of the last few years playing with Sammy in The Circle, continued: “It’s kind of funny, ’cause we start doing The Circle thing, and Sammy gets all enamored with The Circle. He’s all, ‘Oh, yeah. It’s The Circle this and that.’ But you never know. He might wake up tomorrow and go, ‘Oh my God. Chickenfoot — let’s do a Chickenfoot gig.’

I definitely think that Chickenfoot will do something else. Whether we’ll record another album, which would be great — I’d love to do that. But I’d love to just together and even just do some shows — do a bunch of shows with those guys.

‘Cause that’s actually some of the best times I’ve ever had on the road. Believe me — touring with Chad Smith is like touring with no other… Even hanging out with Chad since he’s been sober, he’s still crazier than some of the most crazy people I know.

But we definitely have a great time. And I definitely feel that we’ll [get together], if not to record some new stuff, hopefully in the near future to at least get together and play some shows together.”
