After watching this DVD its safe to say that Chickenfoot have continued where they left off with their fine debut album, an album that was recorded by 4 multi millionaires in 43 days flat with collective album sales of over 200 million in various groups and guises (hence why they are multi millionaires) this DVD says two things to the viewer, fun and talent. The onstage goofing about and smiles is great to see and enhances the songs brilliantly, and talking of songs who can argue with “Sexy Little Thing” and the monster jam session that is “Down the Drain” with Satriani grabbing everyone’s attention with his guitar antics that are simply from a different planet. “Bitten by the Wolf” the semi acoustic track that is only available on the vinyl version of the album is a surprising addition to this live set and gives everyone time to catch their breath from all that has gone before. “Soap on a Rope” comes into its own in the live arena with plenty of funk and swagger endorsed by the loon that is “Chad Smith” who without being tied to the more restricted drumming style of his day job “RHCP” knocks the living daylights out of his poor kit. Towards the end of the set we are treated to “Bad Motor Scooter” the old Montrose track and the first song that Sammy Hagar ever wrote, closely followed by a short and sweet version of the “ooos” My Generation cue drum kit demolition signalling the end of the show and a smiling Phoenix Arizona crowd. Also as a bonus you get a 60 minute on the road documentary which is largely nonsense but admittedly gives an insight into the 4 personalities with “Michael Anthony” coming across as a really nice top guy and Chad Smith joining the ever growing list of drummers that are born crazy, “Moon, Mcbrain, Harry James. Tommy Lee, Bonham”, to name but a few. Highlight of the documentary is Satriani being interviewed by the legend that is “Nigel Tufnel” Spinal Taps guitar master and talent supreme, judging by the nervous answers that Satriani is giving he is obviously in awe of the great guitarist’s presence and someone who was an influence on Satchs career. This is a good value for money package with great sound and camera work and one of those rare DVDs that you will end up watching more than once.
