SAMMY HAGAR 'Rehearsing And Writing Songs' With WABORITAS

Legendary rocker Sammy Hagar (CHICKENFOOT, VAN HALEN, MONTROSE) has revealed to Las Vegas Magazine that he is currently in the studio with his group the WABORITAS "rehearsing and writing songs." He added: "We're putting something out this year and we'll probably go out and do 25-30 shows."

Hagar revealed in a holiday video message that CHICKENFOOT will take 2013 off to focus on other projects. He said: "Joe's [Satriani, CHICKENFOOT guitarist] doing his thing and Chad's [Smith, CHICKENFOOT drummer] just coming off a [RED HOT] CHILI PEPPERS tour and he's not gonna wanna go into the studio. So I think Mikey [CHICKENFOOT/ex-VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony] and I and the WABOS, we'll just go out and do some stuff." That "stuff" will likely include "more shows, maybe a proper tour" and possibly even a new record."

CHICKENFOOT recently reissued its gold-selling 2009 self-titled debut as a double-disc set. The new version features bonus live tracks recorded on the group's tour behind its sophomore studio effort, "III"

CHICKENFOOT's most recent touring lineup included legendary drummer/musician Kenny Aronoff, who was filling in for Smith while Chad was on the road with RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS.
