Foghat

.Foghat was one of the hot 70’s bands that had a unique sound that you could recognize immediately.

Their anthem was Slow Ride, but that was just one of many great tunes that this band recorded. The lineup was:

  • Lonesome Dave Peverett- vocals and guitar
  • Rod Price – lead guitar and vocal
  • Roger Earl – drums
  • Tony Stevens – bass

The guitars and vocals gave the band its unique sound and the bass and drums lent a strong and very hard driving bottom line to the music. These guys rocked hard! And they put out a very successful string of albums in just a few years time.

Here are some of our favorite Foghat tunes, in no particular order:

  • Somebody’s Been Sleeping in My Bed
