A to Z: Little Feat

Today's blog is about the band Little Feat. I missed them during their first line up from 1969-1979. Which the band featured an incredible songwritter Lowell George. George died of heart failure in Arlington, Viginia after a show in Washington in 1979.

Here the band performs "Two Trains" ...

I did catch them during their comeback period with Craig Fuller..1987-1993

Here is their video for "Texas Twister"...

The band was influenced a lot of music I listened to. Jimmy Page called the band his favorite American Band in 1975. Lowell George produced the Grateful Dead's Shakedown Street Album, and drummer Richie Hayward played drums for Robert Plant, Warren Zevon, Eric Clapton, and many more. Jimmy Buffett played tribute to him.

Here is a vintage performance of "Dixie Chicken"...

A very fitting blog post considering today is Lowell George's birthday. Well I hope you enjoy and I will be back soon with a new post
