Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan were supposed to play Webster Hall last night.
"It's too easy to look at Chickenfoot [who are playing Irving Plaza tonight] and see only the two members of Van Halen who weren't invited on the recent reunion tour, the Red Hot Chili Pepper who is arguably the least crucial to that band's chemistry, and a guitarist most famous at the moment for suing Coldplay for plagiarism.
But, respectively, Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony played together for 11 years, Chad Smith's extracurricular drumwork with the Dixie Chicks proved his versatility, and Joe Satriani has always been more song-oriented than the rest of the pack of 1980s guitar shredders." [The Boston Globe]
