Willin'

The Story of Little Feat

By Ben Fong-Torres

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.
Ben Fong-Torres is a journalist, author, and broadcaster, best known for his work in Rolling Stone and the San Francisco Chronicle. He is the author of nine books and lives in San Francisco. BenFongTorres.com
