THE BAND. . . PAST, PRESENT, AND INTO THE FUTURE
In the late 1960âs Roger Earl & Lonesome Dave Peverett first toured America as members of the seminal British band "Savoy Brown". Together with guitarist Kim Simmonds, "Savoy Brown" was on the cutting edge of the emerging British blues-rock scene, and they influenced countless musicians on both sides of the "pond". In 1971, wanting to give a more Rock ân Roll flavor to the blues-boogie music they were playing with "Savoy", Dave & Roger enlisted lead/slide guitarist Rod Price & bassist Tony Stevens, formed a new band, "Foghat", and the rest is part of Rock and Roll history.
Signed by Albert Grossman to Bearsville Records in 1971, the band recorded their first self-titled LP "Foghat" and began touring relentlessly for the next 14 years. Their hard work has thus far been rewarded with seven Gold records, one Platinum record "Fool For The City" (1975), and one Double-Platinum record "Foghat Live" (1977). The "Fool For The City" album contained Foghatâs trademark Top 40 hit song "Slow Ride" and cemented their place as one of the worldâs top rock acts. They continued to hit the charts in the 1970âs with singles such as "Fool For The City", "Drivinâ Wheel", "I Just Wanna Make Love To You", "Iâll Be Standing By", "Stone Blue", "Third Time Lucky" and "Somebodyâs Been Sleeping In My Bed"â¦ many of which are still classic rock radio staples.
Foghat toured and recorded non-stop into the mid-eighties. Tony Stevens had left the band in 1974 to pursue other interests, and was replaced by bassist Craig MacGregor (with a short stint with Nick Jameson in between). Rod Price departed the band in 1980. In 1985 Lonesome Dave returned to England for a well-deserved break from touring, while Roger remained in the US and continued to carry the Foghat flag with non-stop touring with various new musicians and Foghat alumni. In 1989 Lonesome Dave resumed touring in the states with future member Bryan Bassett. But it is 1994 that marks the return of Foghat to the world stage, when the original members reunite for the recording of "Return of the Boogie Men". Being back on the road, non-stop, once again yielded a new live CD for the band titled "Road Cases", released in 1997.
In 1998, Lonesome Dave is diagnosed with cancer. He battles it with amazing strength and courage. He decides he would like to tour again in 1999. With Rod Priceâs decision not to resume touring, Dave calls his old friend Bryan Bassett, who is touring with "Molly Hatchet" and asks him to join the band. Lonesome Dave, one of the all time great rock ân rollers, and a consummate professional, performs flawlessly night after night, doing what he loved doing bestâ¦while still undergoing chemotherapy. The tour was cut short in the fall of 1999, when Dave returns home. He sadly passes away on February 7, 2000. Family and friends are devastated. One of rock ân rollâs legendary performers is mourned by thousands of fans.
As all who knew and loved Dave tried to adjust to this devastating loss, the band had to decide whether it could, or even wanted to, continue playing. Even Daveâs encouragement to keep the band together and to âKeep on Rockinâ was not enough to convince the band that they should go on. After much soul searching and support from the fans, Roger began to hesitantly review some tapes of singers. None of them seemed to have that blend of blues and rock so important to the bandâs sound. Becoming quite discouraged about the prospect of finding a new singer, Roger happened to recall seeing a "Humble Pie" show with Daveâ¦they wanted to see who was singing their mate Stevie Marriottâs songs. They were both pleasantly surprised and impressed! The singer was former "Ted Nugent" and "Victory" vocalist Charlie Huhn. Roger contacted Charlie and a rehearsal was set up at SIR in New York. After just a few hours of jamming, the chemistry was undeniable and all agreed that this was the person to join the band and take it into the future. Charlieâs vocal ability and guitar playing fit the music perfectly and his high-energy stage presence provides what is an essential ingredient to a "Foghat" show.
The band began to tour once again in August of 2000, doing what they love to do and do bestâ¦taking their music to the fans. The camaraderie and fun was apparent in their live performances and after two solid years of touring the band entered the studio to write and record a new CD. The result was their latest studio recording âFamily Joulesâ. In 2004 they released a live DVD called âThe Official Bootleg DVD, Volume 1â and at the end of that year, veteran Foghat bassist extraordinaire Craig Macgregor rejoined the lineup launching Foghat's hard rocking tradition into the future. They are touring non-stop again, and the energy is incredible. In 2007 they released a new double live CD entitled âFOGHAT LIVE IIâ , (recorded in 2005 & 2007) to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the original âFoghat LIVEâ, and to bring the energy and excitement of the current lineup (ROGER EARL, CRAIG MACGREGOR, BRYAN BASSETT & CHARLIE HUHN) to the fans. This opens a new chapter for "Foghat", and promises new and exciting things from one of rockâs most established acts
