Default Foghat - and then there was 1.

I was watching some old videos on YouTube, and happened on Foghat's website. I saw that original bassist Craig Macgregor died on Friday, joining Lonesome Dave Peverett (singer) and Rod Price (lead guitar) in Heaven. They were my very first rock concert in 1978, and Macgregor made quite the impression on a 15 year old rock fan.

R.I.P., Craig, have a good jam with Dave and Rod.

I guess we don't realize that these icons of our youth are not immortal! Kinda slaps you in the face when you realize these guys weren't that much older than you! Glad I decided to see as many of my fav bands from the 70s and 80s as possible before they are all gone!

Right kinda makes me wonder what kind of show they can put on and how it will sound. Concert is free, so I may check it out if I can.

Wow...I also saw them in '78....not my first concert, but in my first dozen or so. Wet Willie and Starz were on the undercard. As great as they were, I might have been as impressed with Starz. IIRC, Foghat was debuting a couple Stone Blue tracks. May not have been their biggest hit, but I do remember being blown away by Drivin Wheel.

RIP

Like a 70's cover band with a professional drummer. 'cause that's what they are.

My first "rock" concert, I grew up a Motown baby, Dave. Driving Wheel is my favorite Foghat song too, Rod's slide on that one is just amazing.

No chance I was impressed by the warm up band at the show I attended. The Hounds. Man, did they suck the big one.
