Steve Janowsky: The Review Fix Rocktologist: Roger Earl Interview

Drummer Roger Earl is a member of one of Classic Rock’s most loved and enduring bands, Foghat. With ‘70’s hits like “I Just Want to Make Love to You,” Fool for the City” and “Slow Ride” and a “non-stop” touring schedule the band’s reputation grew. With the deaths of guitarist and singer “Lonesome” Dave Peverett and slide guitarist Rod Price, it seemed like the wild rock and roll ride was over, but this was not the case. Earl has continued to carry the banner of Foghat and maintain its brilliant legacy with their new CD, “Last Train Home” and dynamic live performances. This rock and roll veteran recently spoke to ReviewFix.com about the new CD, bluesman Eddie Kirkland, Foghat’s glory days, Chuck Berry, his first band, The Tramps, Savoy Brown and the importance of the blues.

  1. Great to get your interviews thru iTunes again, Steve – even if they are in iPod video format, for some reason. Another fine interview. You really get these stars to relax and open up. Roger seems like a great guy. Thanx for bringing back the good memories of my youth. Foghat seems to have been a little forgotten with the passage of time, but they are one of the essential groups of 70’s rock, IMHO. Hard to believe a bunch of Brits had more soul than most American bands of the time. Too bad Roger didn’t have an answer to your question about why the Brits were drawn to the rootsy blues-based sound of American music. I’ve always wondered that, myslef.
