In March last year,Â Little FeatÂ one of my all time favourite bands won theÂ Doobie for â2011 Band- Indie Artist of the Year’ on the jambands.com website.
They beat bands such as Disco Biscuits, Radiohead, Vampire Weekend.Â The ceremony was held in Austin, Texas and at the time, the band posted a message on their website reading: âPlans are currently in the works for an official award presentation to take place during the upcoming US tour. Stay tuned here for further informationâŠand Congrats to Little Feat on this âHighly Coveted honor!â
Well, the Feat’s finally go their Doobie award onstage at New Yorkâs City Winery last week.Â High TimesÂ senior editor Bobby Black presented Little Feat with the award before their extended set. With much of the crowd off work for the New Yearâs Day holiday, it seemed fitting that the band opened their set with ‘Time Loves a Hero’ and dedicated ‘Donât Bogart That Joint’ to the people of Jamaica.
In addition, keyboardist Bill Payne discussed his recent songwriting sessions with Robert Hunter, revealing that the pair never met in person but managed to write nine new songs together thanks to the internet.
Lets have a look at the Feat in 1975 fronted by Lowell George from Guitar Hero’s At The BBC doing ‘Rock & Roll Doctor’
