Foghat was formed by singer and guitarist 'Lonesome' Dave Peverett, bassist Tony Stevens and drummer Roger Earl. They were all formally of the band Savoy Brown but left to pursue their own venture as a trio. They added Rod Price on slide guitar and Foghat was born. Foghat launched their career with two self-titled albums releases in 1972 and '73 (the second being referred to as 'Rock and Roll' to distinguish between them), followed by 'Energized', 'Rock and Roll Outlaws', 'Fool for the City', 'Night Shift', 'Live', 'Stone Blue' and 'Boogie Motel', all in their first active decade. Into the '80s the band slowed down with their records, releasing just four albums between '80 and'84 when they decided to take a break from the industry after a severe drop in record sales. They returned in '94 with 'Return of the Boogie Men' and the live album 'Road Cases' in '98. When Price decided to reture, the band took another break, not knowing whether it was the end. In 2000 founding member Dave Peverett died at the age of 56 after a short battle with cancer. Charlie Huhn was brought in to replace him on guitar and vocals and with that line-up the band recorded 'Family Joules'. Rod Price passed away in 2005 after suffering a heart attack. Further personnel changes ocurred throughout the 2000s with varying line-ups performing on live shows and recordings. In 2015 they started work on a new album which was titled 'Under the Influence'.
