Feat took California rock, funk, folk, jazz, country, rockabilly, and New Orleans swamp boogie and more, stirred it into a rich gumbo, and has been leading people in joyful dance ever since. And it all began because in 1969 Frank Zappa was smart enough to fire Lowell George from the Mothers of Invention and tell him to start a band of his own. Lowell first settled on keyboard wizard Bill Payne, then added drummer Richie Hayward and bassist Roy Estrada (also a Zappa vet). They were quickly signed by Warner Bros., and began working on the first of 12 albums with that venerable company. The name was part of the legend. A member of the Mothers happened to mention Lowell's small feet to him "with an expletive," said Paul Barrere. "Lowell deleted the expletive and the name was born with Feat instead of Feet, just like the Beatles. Neat, huh?" The first album, Little Feat, featured the instant-classic tune "Willin'," and the follow-up Sailin' Shoes added "Easy to Slip," "Trouble," "Tripe Face Boogie," "Cold Cold Cold" and the title track to their repertoire.
