Little Chicken in his House Pictures, Images and Photos

Contrary to a number of recent essays in this series, this week’s featured group does not boast any Top 40 songs, but for more than four decades has been one of the most influential rock groups in the United States. Although the group has reinvented itself time and again, they have maintained an eclectic blend of rock ‘n’ roll, blues, country, folk, R&B, funk and jazz fusion genres. The group was co-founded by singer-songwriter, lead vocalist and guitarist Lowell George (a former member of Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention) and keyboardist Bill Payne in 1969 in Los Angeles.  

About the group, Bonnie Raitt stated, “…Musically, they’re my favorite band…” and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin commented, “…Band-wise, Little Feat is my favorite American group…”

Pony Party: Willin’

Pickin’ up on 73rd’s Chillin’

I like this version on Waitin’ for Columbus (sic)

And if you give me: weed, whites, and wine

and you show me a sign

I’ll be willin’, to be movin’
