Missing Feat


Little Feat may have been one of America's greatest rock 'n' roll bands in the mid-1970s. With the tandem guitar duo of Lowell George and Paul Barrere, their funky, swampy gumbo mix of rhythms and rhymes were hard to top. I was fortunate enough to see them on the 1977 Waiting for Columbus tour which would sadly be Lowell's last major tour with the band as he died of a heart attack in 1979. But Paul kept the Feat flame burning bright. His songwriting, singing and playing was just as integral to Feat's rockin' boogie sound as Lowell's tasty slide work. Best one let the music do the talking. I would suggest listening to Feats Don't Fail Me Now right now.

Roll on, Paul Barrere.
