Foghat

Foghat specialized in a simple, hard-rocking blues-rock, releasing a series of best-selling albums in the mid-'70s. While the group never deviated from their basic boogie, they retained a large audience until 1978, selling out concerts across America and earning several gold or platinum albums. Once punk and disco came along, the band's audience dipped dramatically.

With its straight-ahead, three-chord romps, the band's sound was American in origin, yet the members were all natives of England. Guitarist/vocalist "Lonesome" Dave Peverett, bassist Tony Stevens, and drummer Roger Earl were members of the British blues band Savoy Brown, who all left the group in the early '70s. Upon their departure, they formed Foghat with guitarist Rod Price. Foghat moved to the United States, signing a record contract with Bearsville Records, a new label run by Albert Grossman. Their first album, Foghat, was released in the summer of 1972 and it became an album rock hit; a cover of Willie Dixon's "I Just Want to Make Love to You" even made it to the lower regions of the singles charts. For their next album, the group didn't change their formula at all -- in fact, they didn't even change the title of the album. Like the first record, the second was called Foghat; it was distinguished by a picture of a rock and a roll on the front cover. Foghat's second album was their first gold record, and it established them as a popular arena rock act. Their next six albums -- Energized (1974), Rock and Roll Outlaws (1974), Fool for the City (1975), Night Shift (1976), Foghat Live (1977), Stone Blue (1978) -- all were best-sellers and all went at least gold. "Slow Ride," taken from Fool for the City, was their biggest single, peaking at number 20. Foghat Live was their biggest album, selling over two million copies. After 1975, the band went through a series of bass players; Price left the band in 1981 and was replaced by Erik Cartwright.

In the early '80s, Foghat's commercial fortunes declined rapidly, with their last album, 1983's Zig-Zag Walk, barely making the album charts. The group broke up shortly afterward with Peverett retiring from the road. The remaining members of the band (Roger Earl, Erik Cartwright and Craig MacGregor) continued playing together as the Kneetremblers and after some line-up changes decided to revert to the Foghat name. The band toured throughout the decade and into the early 1990's. Perhaps growing tired of early retirement, Lonesome Dave formed his own version of Foghat in 1990 and hit the road. After healing their rift, the original Foghat (Peverett,Price, Stevens and Earl) reformed in 1993 and toured for years, releasing Return of the Boogie Men in 1994 and Road Cases in 1998. The original band broke apart for good with Peverett's passing due to cancer on February 7, 2000. After some time spent mourning, the band soldiered on with a new line-up (adding Charlie Huhn on vocals) and after two years of touring released Family Joules in 2002. Foghat toured for the next few years and regularly issued documents of their live act: The Official Bootleg DVD, Volume 1 in 2004 and Foghat Live II in 2007. In 2010, now on their own label, Foghat got back to their Blues roots with Last Train Home: a handful of original tunes amongst covers of many of their favorite blues songs and a couple tracks recorded with their friend Eddie Kirkland. As of 2013, they're still performing and recording. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine and Tim Sendra, Rovi

3 cord romp is a good way to describe Foghat. Rock and Roll was not created to be complex, although the so-called rennaisance of the mid 60's did produce some great music. Foghat kept it simple and rocked!

I'm so glad that i was born when music was music. I live the 60s and enjoyed ever bit of it. Went to woodshock had a blash. I knew i was the black sheep of the family but i didn't gave a dam. Smoke my weed and drunk my wine. Then here came disco srew everything up. But i still got my members, and if i had to live it over i would not change a dam thing. Rock and run will live for ever in my mind.

Saw them in '95? maybe '94, Elkhart Indiana - Pierre's nightclub. Pushing 104 Db. Caught Lonesome Daves' guitar pick after I Just Wanna Make Love. Still have it, framed in my music room along with a nice promo poster from the show and my ticket stub.

Back in Ward Melville H.S. on Long Island, N.Y. Roger Earl would come in for the battle of the bands . What a great guy - and a great band !! I would see him at our local Italian restaurant (Mario's) where I worked and he would always be really cool to talk with. I think he still lives here by the water because he likes to go fishing !! Thanks for the great memories Roger !! I'll always remember you (and your way cool corvette - Abbey Road !!) I hope you & your family are well. - Ron

Foghat often played California in the central valley before L.A.. and the usual southern Ca. venues. One night Fresno, next night Bakersfield. they always had a quality opening act which was at worst their equal if not their superior.thi s led to a string of four or five great evenings of rock and roll. i remember shows being Foghat and Blue Oyster Cult, UFO, Nazareth, mott the hoople and once in a so called Rock and roll marathon with ufo , Judas Priest ,Angel , and Humble pie.$7.50tix

When I was six years old I used to steal this album from my sister to play. I played it on my Mickey Mouse record player. She would get pissed because it would get minor scratches. I didn't care and still don't. :)
