Best Music of October, Late Night Pick of the Night: Chickenfoot

Metacritic has listed the most critically acclaimed albums of October HERE.  Top rated album of the month?  Empros by instrumental metal band Russian Circles.  I was bummed to see the new Jane's Addiction album in worst reviewed albums of the month.  I'll still go see them on tour if they come close, though, just to see "Three Days" live again.

Tonight's LNPOTN is Chickenfoot on Jimmy Kimmel on ABC at midnight.  Chickenfoot is the "supergroup" made up of Michael Anthony & Sammy Hagar from Van Halen, Chad Smith from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Joe Satriani.  While I doubt the music is too deep, it may make for a good time.  They are definitely striking a nerve with their audience as their US tour of theater-size venues is sold out.
