Biography

In the late 1960s, Roger Earl and 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 Atlantic. In 1971, wanting to give a more rock ‘n roll flavour to the blues-boogie music they were playing with Savoy, Dave and Roger enlisted lead/slide guitarist Rod Price and bassist Tony Stevens, formed a new band, Foghat. According to Songfacts, Foghat got their name when Peverett came up with the word while playing a Scrabble-like game with his brother. Peverett convinced the band to go with it instead of Brandywine.

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 Foghat’s trademark Top 40 hit song “Slow Ride” and cemented their place as one of the world’s top rock acts. They continued to hit the charts in the 1970s with singles such as “Fool for the City”, “Drivin’ Wheel”, “I Just Wanna Make Love to You”, “I’ll Be Standing By”, “Stone Blue”, “Third Time Lucky” and “Somebody’s Been Sleeping in My Bed”; many of which are still classic rock radio staples.
