Chickenfoot cover Jimi Hendrix

Chickenfoot are thanking fans for their support with a newly-released live video of a Jimi Hendrix classic.

"This was a great year and we were just feeling thankful for all of you fans and thought we'd share this as a holiday gift," said the band. "It's an outtake from the 'Live In Cabo' webcast and is a really smoking version of this tune! Have a great holiday season and we'll see you from the studio in the 2011!"

The April 24, 2010 webcast was part of singer Sammy Hagar’s 20th Anniversary celebrations for his Cabo Wabo Cantina club in San Lucas, Mexico.

Chickenfoot are due back in the studio in January, to resume work on their sophomore album.

The band – Hagar, bassist Michael Anthony, guitarist Joe Satriani and drummer Chad Smith – head into the recording sessions knowing that Smith won’t be able to tour to support the next record, since he’ll be on the road with The Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2011.
