VIDEO: Sammy Hagar jams with Joe Satriani

Sammy Hagar joined Chickenfoot bandmate Joe Satriani on stage in Oakland Thursday night, as part of Satriani’s hometown show at the Fox Theatre.

The two jammed on a couple of encore songs that they’ve performed with the ‘Foot - “Foxey Lady” and “Going Down.”

San Francisco Weekly‘s review of the show referenced Sammy’s appearance:

“Given all the fret frenzies and pedal prowess that came before, it was something of a surprise to have good ole Sammy Hagar wander out for a fat funky Chickenfoot-style encore. His barrel-aged bluesman's holler sounded fine as ever on "Foxy Lady." On "I'm Going Down," Sammy declared Satch his "hero," the guitar deity looked ready to go for hours more, and so did the fans reluctantly clumping off into the relative peace of downtown Oakland.”

Chickenfoot are due back in the studio this month to get to work on their sophomore album.
