Any band around 40-plus years like Little Feat has endured its share of upheaval. The death of co-founder and lead singer Lowell George in 1979 resulted in the Feat's temporary demise. With the death, due to liver cancer, last August of founding drummer Richie Hayward, the band lost the incomparable instigator of its signature maelstrom of rhythm intrigues. But Little Feat, renowned as a ferocious live band, sails on, fueled by its potent, always intoxicating Southern comforting mash of swamp rock, blues, country, boogie, rockabilly, and R&B. The band still sports longtime members Bill Payne, Paul Barrere, Kenny Gradney, Sam Clayton, and Fred Tackett, with Gabe Ford taking over on drums. (Photo by Jon Callas)
