One of the darlings of the 70's. Little Feat and Lowell George had an eclectic blend of style. Rock, Blues, Country and Funk. Top it all off with superior musicianship and what do you got!!!...Baaammmm.

Yeah, this one puzzles me. I would think these guys would be in the same crowd as Wenner, Hunter Thompson and their other Calif. buddies....just must not have sold quite enough records???

They have a few albums that went Gold. Their live/concert LP WAITING FOR COLUMBUS is certified Platinum by the RIAA.

Little Feat was a highly influential and critically acclaimed band during the 70's.

Five Gold albums!!! Including one album that went Platinum !!! In this competetive music business if that is not success then what the hell is ???? Little Feat has plaques hanging up on their walls. They were a commercial success!!!

Little Feat was one of the most underated Rock bands of all time! Great Rock and Roll Band throughout the 70's and still out there rockin' today, even with the loss of their lead guitar and lead vocalist Lowell George in 1979. They produced and recorded some of the best pure rock albums in the 70's and had an eclectic style filled with Rock and roll, country, funk, punk, jazz and blues that was truly original and influential at the time.Yeah......and they were pretty damn successful too !!!

YEAH......THEY FUCKIN' ROCK!! PUT THEM IN THE HALL DAMN IT !!!

I'm all for their membership in the Rock Hall. Great band. What works against them might be that they are a bit more of a 'Southern' known more there than the West coast for example.

ok, If "Criteria include the influence and significance of the artist's contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll." So what exactly did Bananarama do to get on the list but Little Feat isn't. The R&R Hall of fame is a joke.

Let's see ... Paul Barrere just produced Coco Montoya's newest album; Billy Payne produced and is all over Stephen Bruton's new album; Shaun Murphy co-wrote a song and sings on Sam Bush's new album (and Sam has performed multiple Little Feat tunes in his rather amazing style); all members of Little Feat are welcome guests on an amazing array of artists who are too numerous to mention (though Robert Palmer's "Sneaking Sally" was produced by Lowell George, and LF was Palmer's "back-up band" on "Pressure Drop"). Today, Vince Hermann of Left Over Salmon regularly appears on stage with the Feat, as does saxophonist Ron Halloway of the DC area. The Subdudes (another band that belongs in the Hall), Derek Trucks, all of the Nevilles, the Radiators are just a few of the bands that have paid homage to the Feat and said they have been heavily influenced by them. Members of the Feat have played and toured with the likes of Dylan, Bonnie & Delaney Bramlett, Bob Seger (Seger asked Shaun Murphy to sing back-up vocals with him at his RRHofF induction ceremony, and took her from the band for his last tour), and others.

Outstanding songwriting, excelling musicianship, songs that were performed by numerous artists (Willin') so they were influential.

Bananarama what? Little Feat belongs, period. If not, then the it's the Hall of Shame! Album sales shouldn't count anyway. Influence counts. And they did. Back in the day when their first three sold poorly, those that were listeneing knew this was really something different. Neither of the first three sounded anything like the othere two, and then pow!, "Feats Don't Fail Me Now" comes out and it sounded different. It's sad that we have to even discuss this, just let 'em in!

Hey !!! You know what ??? I don't think they ever had a Top 40 single.
Posted by Joe-Skee on Tuesday, 04.8.08 @ 14:15pm
Don't really remember them much from the 70s (so many great acts back then). Have heard some great comments about them & I am going to get their GHs album (if one exists) & check them out.
Posted by Paul in KY on Thursday, 07.10.08 @ 13:10pm
The 1973 classic album "Dixie Chicken" would be a better choice than any GHs disc.
Posted by Joe-Skee on Thursday, 07.10.08 @ 13:45pm
Just finished listening to their GHs album over weekend. Can a band be both a more-bluesy & more-country version of Lynryd Skynrd?
Posted by Paul in KY on Monday, 07.28.08 @ 11:48am
They have influenced bands and artists since 1968. Lowell George produced a Grateful Dead album and among his protegees were Jackson Browne, Robert Palmer and Bonnie Raitt. The drummer Richie Hayward alone has played with Robert Plant, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Buddy Guy, Ricky Lee Jones, Peter Frampton and many more I cannot even remember. I have seen even bands as big as Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and U2 give them props. It is long past due that they join the Hall of Fame.

Little Feat is one of the greatest American groups with an eclectic yet unique blend of American music and they are still doing it with as much finesse and class as ever.A great band !
Posted by Nick K on Thursday, 08.13.09 @ 10:21am
It's insanity not to have them in the R&R HOF. Lowell George alone influenced several people who ARE in the Hall or soon will be. The quality of the music, even today with the current version of the band, has never wavered. Consumate pros with great records and a great live band. They meet all criterion and it is shameful they have not had more immediate consideration and promotion of their nomination. the Feat ROCK!!!!!
Posted by Michael on Saturday, 12.19.09 @ 23:36pm
The Feat have been and are one the BEST rock and roll(and eclectic) bands of the last 4 decades. They should have been inducted long ago.
Posted by Steve on Saturday, 04.3.10 @ 20:28pm
Let's see...the greatest rock bands of all time...

hey everyone, I'm a high school student trying to get the band Little Feat inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. would any of you be interested in an interview? if so please answer these questions as a comment:1. How would you describe LF's sound?

Greatest American band in history- that they aren't in every hall of fame purporting itself to represent rock and roll is a crying shame.
Posted by miguelryno on Tuesday, 09.14.10 @ 02:28am
Not as good as The Rolling Stoes or Lynard Skynard or U2.....BETTER!!!!!! No contest! Don't even think about putting KISS into the HOF until Little Feat has been inducted.
Posted by mad-croat on Tuesday, 09.28.10 @ 16:56pm
Until Little Feat is inducted into your so called Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is better labeled The Rock and Roll Hall of SHAME. SHAME on you for not nominating/electing/inducting Little Feat into the 'Hall'. I'll pay attention to what you say when you do what I say !!! Otherwise you wallow in uselessness !
Posted by Lenny Greene on Monday, 11.22.10 @ 19:57pm
I cant believe this band hasnt even been considered. They have always had a loyal following and numerous people know their body of work more then speaks for itself. Wake up
Posted by Mark on Monday, 11.22.10 @ 20:19pm
There are only two things that come close to this level of RnR injustice. The failure to induct the Funk Brothers in the sidemen category and the failure to induct Tower of Power. All three of these situations need to be immediately corrected!!

Ltfeat is one of the greatest Bands around ,Wateing for Columbus Is a A+ Class C D

To not be in the HOF is a travesty, but then to have NEVER been NOMINATED. Jan Wenner and the Rock and Roll HOF board do not know what they are doing. The list of other bands that are not in since being eligible is almost equally as embarrassing. Ask almost ANY musician from the Little Feat era.....which still exists BTW.....if LF belongs in the HOF and I quarantee you the answer would be a resounding YES!
Posted by Bob Dushin on Sunday, 04.15.12 @ 22:18pm
LITTLE FEAT is great induct them you BOZOs

Listen to Mojo Nixon's song "Rock and Roll Hall of Lame." That says it all.
