The saga of legendary band Little Feat is one of rock 'n' roll's great untold 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 ill-fated vocalist and brilliant slide guitarist Lowell George, Little Feat recorded such classic studio albums as Sailin' Shoes and Dixie Chicken, as well as one of the best live albums of all time: "Waiting for Columbus."
Working with surviving band members and their friends and associates, acclaimed journalist Ben Fong-Torres uses hours of new interviews with all the key players to create the definitive, first-ever biography of this beloved rock 'n' roll institution.
