Do you have your Foghat on?
A bit of rock trivia: Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin wore one for a short time during a concert in 1970! I bought one the first time I saw them in Springfield, MA. I have no idea what happened to it!
I saw this excellent blues-rock band a few times at the Springfield Civic Center, once as the warm-up band for, I think, Ted Nugent and once for Rush. And once, as the headliner. I believe some group called the Stars warmed up for them, but that was back in the 1970s. My memories of that time are a bit faded.
The founding members were Dave “Lonesome Dave” Peverett (Guitar, Vocals), Tony Stevens (Bass), Roger Earl (Drums), and Rod Price (Guitar/Slide Guitar).
Fool For The City (1975)
Fool for the City was the fifth album released by English rock band Foghat, released in 1975. This was their first platinum album and features, along with the title track, their most famous song, “Slow Ride.”
Home In My Hand (1974)
Sorry about the recording #’s, but still just great live music! Foghat left an indelible imprint on Rock history and were incredible musical talents. For some reason, they never really received the recognition deserved. It’s a real shame that they aren’t in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
I Just Want To Make Love To You (Dayton, OH 1997)
I mean, you are talking about a band with 5 Gold and 2 Platinum albums, for Pete’s sake!
Stone Blue (1978)
“Stone Blue” was the seventh studio album by English blues-rock band Foghat, released in May 1978. For this album, Foghat paired with producer Eddie Kramer, who had previously worked with Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. Kramer and Foghat did not hit it off too well, but the tension in the studio probably helped to give the album an added edge. In addition to the title track, “Stone Blue” (a Top 40 hit), the collection also boasted a ferocious cover of Robert Johnson’s “Sweet Home Chicago,” reasserting the band’s blues credentials.
Sweet Home Chicago (1978)
Foghat was a great band that history has kind of ignored. However, if you look, there are still some old die-hard Foghat fans like me lurking around out there.
