Richie Hayward Benefit

Many of you have heard some of Richie Haywards handiwork, even if off of the top of your head you don't know who he is. He's the original drummer of the group Little Feat, and after all these years, Little Feat is still funking and skunking and playing their particularly version of funky rhythm and blues.

In addition to holding downt the drum chair for Little Feat since 1969, wiki lists these artists as some of the people that's he's played with as well, and it reads like a who's who of rock and roll: Joan Armatrading, Kim Carnes, Eric Clapton, Ry Cooder, James Cotton, The Doobie Brothers, Bob Dylan, Peter Frampton, Buddy Guy, Arlo Guthrie, Jonny Lang, Nils Lofgren, Taj Mahal, Robert Palmer, Van Dyke Parks, Robert Plant, Bob Seger, Carly Simon, Stephen Stills, Tom Waits,John Cale, Warren Zevon and Helen Watson.

Drummers from all over the world are giving a bit to help Richie out, since he is a U.S. Citizen living in Canada and he has no health insurance.
Of course, this year represents thirty years since the passing of the legendary front man of Little Feat, Lowell George.
