Overview

(Book). The late Lowell George is best known as the lead singer, slide guitarist, songwriter and producer of Little Feat. George's humor and surreal lyrics became a Little Feat trademark, making songs like "Fat Man in the Bathtub" and "Dixie Chicken" unforgettable. Rock and Roll Doctor explores the genius that animated Little Feat from George's early bands to his work with Frank Zappa, landmark albums such as Feats Don't Fail Me Now and The Last Record Album , and his later production work with Linda Ronstadt and the Grateful Dead. George's colorful childhood is covered in depth as is his solo career after Little Feat that was cut short tragically. Each Little Feat album is treated to a separate chapter that examines the development of every song how it was conceived, recorded and produced. The analysis of Little Feat's complex rhythms will fascinate musicians and fans alike. Lowell George was the best singer, songwriter and guitar player I have ever heard, hands down, in my life. Bonnie Raitt
