1971 / Present


Boogie music-inspired hard rockers Foghat started off as an idea held by musicians Roger Earl and Lonesome Dave Peverett when they first toured America in the late-60s as members of the seminal British band Savoy Brown. The two of them playing alongside guitarist Kim Simmonds, Savoy Brown was on the cutting edge of the massive British blues rock scene, and they influenced countless musicians on both sides of the Atlantic. In 1971, wanting to give a more slick, rock n roll flavor to the boogie music they were playing with said group, Dave and Roger enlisted lead/slide guitarist Rod Price and bassist Tony Stevens to create a new band. According to Songfacts, Foghat got their name from when Peverett played a Scrabble-like game with his brother and just made up a word on the spot to suit his letters. Peverett convinced the band to go with it instead of Brandywine.

Signed by rock impresario Albert Grossman to Bearsville Records in 1971, the band recorded their first LP, titled simply 'Foghat', and began touring relentlessly for the next fourteen years. Becoming one of the biggest hard rock bands of the 70s, their hard work has thus far been rewarded with seven gold records, one platinum record (1975's 'Fool For The City'), and one double-platinum record (1977's 'Foghat Live'). 'Fool For The City' brought the world Foghat’s signature song "Slow Ride", an iconic Top 40 hit, and cemented their place as one of the world’s top boogie / blues acts of the era. They continued to hit the charts in the 70s again and again 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.
