Description

Roger Earl Interview from Foghat musiclegends.ca Interviewed by Jason Saulnier May 25, 2010 Roger Earl Talks about the New releases "Not live at the BBC"&"Last Train Home". Roger Earl gives a good conversation about blues guitarist Eddie Kirkland. Recording the album 1975 "Fool for the City" plenty of details. http Roger Earl is the drummer of the band Foghat, famed for their relentless touring and strong live performances. A founding member, along with guitarist and vocalist "Lonesome" Dave Peverett, guitarist Rod Price, and bassist Tony Stevens, Earl is the only living member to have continued with the band throughout all of its various incarnations. Before founding Foghat, Earl was a member of Savoy Brown from 1967 to 1970 and auditioned (unsuccessfully) for the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Earl continues to tour with Foghat, playing around 70 dates a year, specialising in city-fests, biker conventions and the "stay where you play" casino circuit, and lives with his wife Linda on the North Shore, Long Island, west of Port Jefferson, New York, well suited to Earl's fishing hobby. The Earls are a musical family with Roger's brother, Colin Earl, playing electric piano for Mungo Jerry, including on their world wide hit "In the Summertime", as well as on a number of Foghat's uptempo hits. Like many long time rock drummers Roger now wears a hearing aid. His most notable trademark with Foghat was his enormous mustache that covered half his face which he doesn't wear anymore.
