9780306823633: Willin': The Story of Little Feat

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 doomed, enigmatic, and charismatic vocalist and slide guitarist Lowell George, they recorded such classic studio albums as Sailin' Shoes and Dixie Chicken, as well as what many consider to be one of the best live albums of all time: Waiting for Columbus. After George's tragic death in 1979 and a long period of silence, the band later re-formed in 1987, delighting concert crowds with tight renditions of their beloved songs, including their signature outlaw trucker anthem "Willin'."

Acclaimed journalist Ben Fong-Torres, working with surviving band members and their friends and associates, has based Willin' on hours of brand-new interviews with all the key players, resulting in the definitive, first-ever biography of this beloved rock 'n' roll institution.

Review:

Booklist, 11/1/13

Drawing on interviews with bandmates, family members, and fellow musician details the in-fighting; the romantic entanglements (which rival those of Fleetwood Mac); the drugs; and the music. This long-overdue biography is a treat for Feat fans and an homage to a seminal '70s band whose influence on other musicians far outweighs its commercial success.”
Niagara Gazette/Tonawanda News Sunday, 10/27/13

If you are familiar with the music of Little Feat you will absolutely love the book, as it answers a lot of questions.  If not, well it is a great cultural history piece on how the music industry has evolved over the years and one band's tenacity to overcome all of those changes.”
Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, 11/10/13

A definitive history of a most interesting (and talented) band”
Vintage Guitar,1/1/13

[An] enticing, entertaining read.”
Blogcritics, 12/4/13

Fong-Torres was the perfect choice for this book .For those of us who have been waiting for the definitive Little Feat book to come along, this is it.”
Toronto Globe and Mail, 12/7/13

Probably the most underrated band in rock 'n' roll history, Little Feat (Willin', Dixie Chicken) finally gets its due. Focus is properly on its presiding spirit, the brilliant and doomed Lowell George.”
Glide Magazine, 1/8/14

Founding Rolling Stone editor Ben Fong-Torres does an admirably restrained job of telling the Feats story factually and without undue melodrama Meticulously gathering facts like the expert reporter that he is, Fong-Torres speaks with seemingly all those around George at every point in his life.”

Houston Press, 1/20/13

[The] story and music of Little Feat are due for reevaluation among classic-rock fans, and Willin' is a big step in that direction.”

Philadelphia Inquirer, 2/16/2014
