Willin': The Story of Little Feat (Hardcover)

Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


The saga of the legendary Los Angeles band Little Feat is one of rock n roll's great stories. Formed in 1969 by ex-members of Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention, Little Feat created groove-heavy music that was an irresistible mix of rock, blues, R&B, country, jazz, soul, and funk.
Fronted by the charismatic but doomed vocalist and brilliant slide guitarist Lowell George, the band recorded such classic studio albums as "Sailin Shoes" and "Dixie Chicken," as well as "Waiting for Columbus," which many consider to be one of the best live albums of all time.
Acclaimed journalist Ben Fong-Torres working with Little Feat's surviving members, their friends, and associates wrote "Willin " based on hours of brand new interviews with the key players. The result? The first definitive biography of this beloved rock n roll institution.
