"It was a joke name when we started, Chad, Michael, and I" Chickenfoot  frontman Sammy Hagar says of his newish supergroup  with guitarist Joe Satriani , former Van Halen  bassist Michael Anthony and Red Hot Chili Peppers  drummer Chad Smith in a Billboard.com video interview done in conjunction with Fuse. "There were three of us and it looked like a chickenfoot."
"Probably fueled by some kind of tequila," Anthony jokes.
In the midst of their first multi-continent tour, the four veteran musicians sat down to talk about the group's origins, the making of debut album "Chickenfoot," picking singles "Oh Yeah" and "Soap On A Rope," and the Van Halen connection that kicked things off. The album reached No. 4 on the Billboard 200  this June and earned No. 1s on both the Independent Albums  and Hard Rock Albums  charts.
