Chickenfoot Lands Mellencamp Drummer

With Chad Smith having decided his drumming role in the Red Hot Chili Peppers takes priority over providing the beat for Chickenfoot, the Sammy Hagar fronted group has turned to John Mellencamp's veteran stick man, Kenny Aronoff, to join Chickenfoot on the tour supporting that group's sophomore album, Chickenfoot III (there was no Chickenfoot II).  Smith says he looks forward to getting back behind his kit with the Foot after doing double-time with the Peppers and says Aronoff will '...tear it up', but should not get too comfortable because he wants the gig back as soon as his Chili obligations are taken care of.
Chickenfoot III gets a September 26 release that will be followed with a live web-cast the next night.
