See the Music With Chickenfoot — "Up Next"
Wed, 09 Nov 2011 06:53:33
Guitarist Joe Satriani and bassist Michael Anthony of Chickenfoot sat down with ARTISTdirect.com to exclusively discuss the song "Up Next" from the group's sophomore effort Chickenfoot III for our "See the Music" series.
Satriani recalled the genesis of the song, saying, "The riff...I started that on a Chickenfoot tour. I was carrying that riff around and I made a demo of it, sent it to the guys and one day it just came up again."
The song had even more buoyancy since it was one of "Carter's favorites," with Carter being frontman Sammy Hagar's personal manager and one of Chickenfoot's managers, who passed away while the record was being recorded. Carter had been pushing for the song to be on the record so it took on emotional new weight, heft and resonance, in addition to being a rad, rocking song.
