The Red Rocker heads to San Francisco to chat and jam with Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chickenfoot drummer Chad Smith on “Rock & Roll Road Trip: Chicken & Chili” presented by Mercury Insurance July 16 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on AXS TV. In the all-new season two installment, Smith joins Sammy Hagar at his studio to share some conversation and perform some Chickenfoot hits with him and Joe Satriani. How sweet is that?
Kick back and watch the wild pair of rockers take a spin in one of Hagar’s fleet of fantastic cars and talk about Smith’s iconic career. Rest-assured, the Red Rocker is going to bring you up close and personal to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame percussionist in a way you’ve never seen before. Throw the pair of famous friends’ mutual pal Joe Satriani into the mix and you should probably buckle up for a crazy rock and roll ride!
Chickenfoot, after all, is one of the biggest supergroups on the planet. Their 2009 debut eponymous album rocketed straight to the top of Billboard’s Top Independent Albums and Top Hard Rock Albums. These boys, who hailed from other huge bands and hooked up to fuse their talents, are serious rockers with jaw-dropping talent. Plus, Smith has earned the reputation of being one of the most sought-after drummers on the music landscape.
One of the great things about “Rock & Roll Road Trip” is how rock legend Sammy Hagar uses his laid-back, irresistible charm to tease out fun facts from his music peers. And, standard interview rules don’t apply when Hagar hits the stage and rocks out with his subjects, who are frequently some of his closest pals. This week’s “Rock & Roll Road Trip” episode gives you a ticket to an intimate Chickenfoot jam session you likely won’t forget.
