History[Edit]Edit

The band originally consisted of Dave Peverett ("Lonesome Dave") on the guitar and as singer, Tony Stevens on bass, and Roger Earl on the drum kit. After they departed at Savoy Brownin 1970, came with the band as a guitarist Rod Price . In January 1971 the band officially took the name Foghat to.

Their debut album, also called Foghat, appeared in 1972. This album was produced by Dave Edmunds and had a cover of Willie Dixon's "I just want to make love to you".Their second album, likewise Foghat called, was released in 1973. This was their first gold record. In 1974 the album Energized, followed by Rock and Roll Outlaws andFool for the City in 1975. Stevens left the band that year after disagreement over the tour plans of the band. He was replaced by producer Nick Jameson for the shooting of Fool For The City. Jameson was replaced by Craig MacGregor. In this composition, the band Night Shift in 1976, a live album in 1977, and Stone Blue In 1978. Each of these albums became gold. The greatest success of the band was Foghat Live, of which 2 000 000 copies were sold.

More hits followed: Drivin' Wheel, I Just Want to Make Love to You, Stone Blue and Third Time Lucky (The First Time I Was a Fool). Rod Price, however, was not happy with the fact that the band was on tour almost continuously, and left the band in november 1980. After an audition that took a few months, he was replaced by Erik Cartwright in February 1981.

After 1978 the band's sales began to decline. Their last album for Bearsville Records was Zig-Zag Walk, which was released in 1983. MacGregor quit the band in 1982, and Nick Jameson returned to take his place for In the Mood For Something Rude and Zig Zag Walk. Then he gave his position to Kenny Aaronson (1983) and then Rob Alter (1983-1984). MacGregor returned in 1984 to the band along with multi-instrumentalist Jason "Bakko" Bakken.

After Dave Peverett left in 1984 the band split up. Earl, along with MacGregor and Cartwright, blew new life into the group in 1986 with a new singer/guitarist: Eric (E.J.) Burgeson. Burgeson as Foghat. In the following years the band went under a number of changes in composition.

In 1993 came at the urging of producer Rick Rubin all the original members back together for a comeback project. Although Rubin ultimately proved unable to help them in this project, the group still further. In 1994 they released the album Return of the Boogie Men out, in 1998 followed by a live album entitled Road Cases. After to have been back together for six years, again the original group fell apart when Price decided to stop.

On 7 February 2000 Dave Peverett died from complications of cancer. After his death the band went with two of the original members (Roger Earl and Tony Stevens), plus Bryan Bassett and Charlie Huhn. On 22 March 2005 Rod Price died of a head wound he sustained after falling down the stairs, combined with a heavy heart attack.
