Chickenfoot III podcast 4: Up Next

Chickenfoot have issued the fourth episode in a new video podcast series to introduce their forthcoming album, “Chickenfoot III,” due September 27.

The every-other-day video podcast series is designed to take fans behind the scenes and hear the members of Chickenfoot give background behind each song on the new project while sharing a preview clip of the track.

Episode #4 features the guys talking about the album’s fourth track, “Up Next.”

The song has special meaning to the band.

“Up Next” is written for our manager, [John] Carter, who died in the middle of making this record,” says Sammy Hagar.Carter was the guy who signed me to my first record contract when I was throw out of Montrose, and produced my first four albums. Carter, dear friend, became our co-manager, and he got cancer: last minute, got it diagnosed, got operated on immediately and died. It was horrible.”

“No one knew Carter was sick,”
continued Sammy. “No one knew he was gonna die that year, no one knew he was gonna die that month. It was so crazy that it inspired this whole song.”
