You might not like it but saying Chicken Foot is not a proper band... they record, they tour. What's not proper about it? They are more "proper" than the Bands that never record anything and only play very small venues or don't even basically tour... (most of the Metal Bands from Members of this forum for example). Let's not even talk about Cover Bands, aren't they proper Bands too?
Phill X was for many years a Hired Gun in Bon Jovi... not proper too?
