Classic Artist of the Month

Foghat

 

Formed in 1971 in England, Foghat has always been a front-runner in Blues & Boogie Rock.  Numerous Platinum and Gold records have enhanced their career.  Several members formed the band after a successful start in Savoy Brown.  Originial members "Lonesome" Dave Peverett and Rod Price left this earth several years ago, leaving drummer Roger Earl to carry on the legacy.  Founding member and bassist, Tony Stevens, leads his own band SlowRide.

Today, longtime band members Craig MacGregor and Bryan Bassett join Roger in the band, which is rounded out with Charlie Huhn.  Roger's brother, Colin Earl (Mungo Jerry), can sometimes be found touring or recording with the band, too.  Foghat's latest album, Last Train Home, drives home their high-energy sound and includes the late Eddie "Bluesman" Kirkland in one of his last studio performances.  Be sure to tune-in to our syndicated radio program during October 20 through October 26 to catch our interview with Roger and Colin exclusively on Classic Artists Today©
