When the band was initially formed, it consisted of three members, Dave Peverett, who was the lead vocalist and guitarist, Tony Stevens, who was the bassist and Roger Earl, who was the drummer for the band. The trio left their former band Savoy Brown in 1970 which led to the formation of Foghat. However, it wasn’t until the following year, that they named the band Foghat. By the end of 1970, the fourth and final band member, Rod Price accepted his position as the lead guitarist. The band came out with its debut album in 1972 with the help of record producer and singer, Dave Edmunds. This album was self-titled and featured a cover of the song “I Just Want to Make Love to You” by Willie Dixon. This cover earned them massive fame and the song was able to capture immense air time. Foghat then came out with its sophomore album Rock and Roll came out in the following year, which was able to receive gold certification.
Their third album was named ‘Energized’ and was released in 1974 and in the following year another album called ‘Fool for the City’ was released. In this year, the bassist, Stevens left the band due to excessive touring schedules throughout the year. The band took in a temporary bassist, Nick Jameson who played with the band for a year after which he place was taken on by Craig McGregor. With the next bassist, the band was able to release three more albums; Night Shift which they released in 1976, Foghat Live that came out in 1977 and Stone blue which finished recording in 1978. All these three albums were able to receive gold certifications and with this the band’s touring schedule became endless. Their fifth album, which was their debut live album, was able to sell over two million copies. However, the band faced distress as Rod Price, the guitarist of the band decided to quit in 1980 due to the tiring tours and an unwanted shift from hard boogie music towards a pop influenced direction. Foghat faced a tough time finding a new guitarist that was up to the band’s expectations. Finally after a year of auditions, the band welcomed their new electric guitarist, Erik Cartwright.
The era of the eighties brought trouble for the band, as a majority of the members left and sales began to decline. Their latest album named Zig-Zag Walk which was released in 1983 wasn’t able to capture a large audience due to which bassist, Craig McGregor left the band. For almost a year, many replacements came forward that included Kenny Aaronson and Rob Alter after which McGregor decided to rejoin Foghat in 1984. However, the same year saw the quitting of the lead vocalist Dave Peverett after which the band disbanded for a brief time period. Though the band was no longer working on any new projects, McGregor, Cartwright and Earl were still touring till the early nineties. It was finally in the year 1993 that the original band members came together to release a studio album. In 1994, Return of the Boogie Men was released which received critical acclaim. A live album came forward four years later while another studio album was released in 1999. This album was the last album released by Foghat in the nineties era.
