If you don’t know Little Feat you should.  If you do know Little Feat, you know that they are a band that mixes rock, R&B, soul, jazz, blues, and funk into a groove-filled gumbo of thoughtful lyrics and foot stompin’ rock & roll “some contend is bad for the body and bad for the soul.“   Here is the story of a peerless band whose contagious and unique sound is sure to be appreciated by all who are “Willin’” to Rock & Roll all night.


— From Willin' : The Story of Little Feat


The saga of the legendary Los Angeles band Little Feat is one of rock 'n' roll's great stories. 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 charismatic but doomed vocalist and brilliant slide guitarist Lowell George, the band recorded such classic studio albums as Sailin' Shoes and Dixie Chicken, as well as Waiting for Columbus, which many consider to be one of the best live albums of all time.

Acclaimed journalist Ben Fong-Torres--working with Little Feat's surviving members, their friends, and associates--wrote Willin' based on hours of brand new interviews with the key players. The result? The first definitive biography of this beloved rock 'n' roll institution.
