Foghat was an English rock band that had its greatest success in the mid- to late-1970s. Their music was straight-ahead blues-rock, dominated by electric & electric slide guitar, and the band achieved five gold records. The group remained popular during the disco era, but after the emergence of punk rock, the band no longer had a substantial audience, and they stopped performing live in 1984.
The band featured Dave Peverett ("Lonesome Dave") on guitar and vocal, Tony Stevens on bass, and Roger Earl on drums. They added Rod Price on guitar/slide guitar and formed Foghat upon leaving Savoy Brown in the early 1970s. Their 1972 album Foghat had a hit with a cover of Willie Dixon's "I Just Want to Make Love to You". The second album was also called Foghat (known as "rock and roll" for the cover photo of a rock and a roll), and it went gold. Energized came out in 1974, followed by Rock and Roll Outlaws and Fool for the City in 1975, the year that Stevens left the band. Stevens was replaced temporarily by Nick Jameson in 1975 and then permanently by Craig MacGregor
