Chickenfoot Will Never Play Van Halen
Sammy Hagar says that they will never play material from his old band
"We really do not want to dilute this band and become a Van Halen cover band, or become a Sammy Hagar cover band or a Joe Satriani cover band... The idea is that we are Chickenfoot, and we will stay that,” Hagar told Get Your Rock Out. "I don’t think we will ever play any of our old catalog unless you catch us in Cabo jamming, and then it’s more Hendrix and Zeppelin and Montrose and that kind of stuff.”
But, that doesn’t mean that Hagar fans won’t still have an opportunity to hear the Red Rocker perform his pre-Chickenfoot tunes.
"I save that for my solo tour – if you see Sammy Hagar on tour, you’re going to get my whole catalog,” he said. "You’re going to get [songs] from Montrose to the early Red Rocker years, Van Halen – the Van Hagar era ... everything but Chickenfoot.”
