Chickenfoot will release Best + Live on March 10th and the band has released a video of their cover of the Deep Purple classic, Highway Star.

The performance was filmed at the historic Fillmore in San Francisco during the band’s debut run of shows in small clubs in May 2009 and it can be seen viewed below.

The band recently released an official video for Divine Termination, their first new song in five years, which is also included on the album. It can be viewed here.

Best + Live includes over 90 minutes of live music – for the first time released on CD.

Sammy Hagar says, “Listening to this collection of songs from the ‘Foot brings back memories of some of the most fun I’ve ever had in a band. The chemistry between Chad, Joe, Mike and me is very special. It’s almost like visual music — you can see us having fun when you listen to these songs.”

Both the extra CD “live” and the bonus tracks on the best of feature a 13 song strong set list including almost every song from Chickenfoot’s debut album as well as Sammy Hagar’s old Montrose classic Bad Motor Scooter, The Who’s My Generation and Joe Satriani’s interpretation of The Star Spangled Banner – all recorded live in Phoenix 2009 and available for the first time on CD (previously only available as video on the DVD/Blu-ray Get Your Buzz On.

  1. I have seen this video on You Tube. Chickenfoot just rips it up on “Highway Star”! This is probably the best version of this song I have ever heard anyone but Deep Purple play. Joe Satriani even does Jon Lord’s keyboard solo on his guitar! It is evident these guys just love to play music together! PLEASE GOD, BRING THESE GUYS BACK TOGETHER TO CREATE SOME NEW MUSIC AND TOUR THE WORLD AGAIN!

  2. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, is there anything Sammy can’t do? If anybody can do “Highway Star” justice, the ‘Foot can!

    I’m mixing Kiss’ new Destroyer Cola with Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, I call it my “RED ROCKET RIDE!” 😉 You should try it, it’s f**kin’ delicious! Cheers!

  3. I think that’s one of the best versions of Highway Star I’ve heard or seen. Great band, great musicians who are having fun…unlike another associated band that I’ve seen in it’s “new” incarnation, that is apparently dead in the water.

  4. OMG, this ripped! Sammy, Michael and Joe are in their 60’s (Chad is the kid at 55), tell me some young band today could have done that. No frickin’ way. Awesome.
