8/15: Chickenfoot at the Rock Hall

Posted By on Thu, Aug 13, 2009 at 8:00 AM

Four big names in rock (Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony, Chad Smith) make up one of the biggest supergroups of the year. With the raw power of Montrose, the shredding chops of Van Halen and a hammered-anvil rhythm section that rivals Led Zeppelin, why did these guys name their unstoppable aggregation after the right wing’s nickname for the peace sign? Are they Republicans or just trying to reinvent and reclaim the term for the next generation? Hard telling, but either way, Chickenfoot have cooked up a blistering debut that showcases their talents in a band that ultimately plays like four hyper-talented guys freeing their oversized egos. Davy Knowles and Back Door Slam open at 8 p.m. at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum (1100 Rock and Roll Blvd., 216.781.ROCK). It’s free, but a ticket is required. You can find info on how to get one on the website. — Brian Baker
