Hey Redheads I've been seeing some posts from many of you about my set being cut short at one of my Detroit shows with Kid. I was super bummed, but with the recent events at other shows - we decided to be safe rather than sorry. I always put the safety of my fans first. When things cleared, I decided to allow Kid to run his whole show for the fans. People were going to be disappointed either way and it just felt like the right thing to do. On a positive note, did you see the fan video of me and Kid and our rocking version of American Band!?

The (Big) 'Foot, Shows, Giveaways... & Google+

Hey Sammy here,

It's been a litte while and I just wanted to check in with you all. As usual I've been going full speed. Lots going on with the Foot in preparation for our upcoming album drop and this past weekend we shot a music video for "Big Foot" - it's going to be awesome and I can't wait until you see it. I know you'll love it! Man Chickenfoot III is so slamming-- I wish we could release it today and already be out on the road playing it for you!

Redheads,

Last week I lost a manager, a friend, a cowriter, & a producer. But most of all Carter was a fan of fans – a true Redhead. He cowrote the song "Red" with me and was the kind of guy who would have been in that line sleeping on the sidewalk. He was a true music lover.

I miss him.

I thought my right hand was going to fall off. I signed that many books in the last two weeks. Literally thousands and thousands. Some of you were there in NYC, St Louis, LA... I love my Redheads. So great that so many of you came out to get the book signed. Not so great that so many eBay sellers were so rude and pushy and made it so hard for the real fans who were respecting each other and following the rules. Everywhere at all the bookstores there were awkward incidents that were so embarrassing to me. If you are someone who had a bad experience I am truly sorry.

Painting the library RED!

Ok. There's no turning back now. My life's work is about to hit the shelves. I've poured my heart and soul into RED and I'm ready to share it with the world. As of 3/15 my full story will be told - nothing held back.

I'm jazzed about heading out to see all of you at the book signings. My whirlwind promotional tour starts this week in Canada at Canadian Music Week where I'll be speaking as well as having a special showing of my new film 'Go there Once Be There Twice'. Who's planning on joining me at CMW?
