... from my parents' balcony here in Halifax, N.S. Chickenfoot is kicking off their North American tour here, of all places. Couldn't beliveve it. Listening to it I feel transported back to high school in the 80s. Satriani is off the hook, of course. Sammy is quite the showman, I'm pleasantly surprised. Anthony's mix is mud from where I am sitting - it's got to go through some trees and over the CBC building to get to me. Seems to be holding down his end, though. Is he a respected bassist? I never paid that much attention to him. Chad Smith - fine, he just has to keep time for Satriani's solos, I guess. Anyway, fun sounding band. Why the hell not?
