It is festival season here is North Texas where I live (US). Each weekend we have our choice of some art fesitval, music festival, food festival or some other kind of cultural festival..... it is so much fun. Last weekend I shared in a post about how exciting it was to see Chris Daughtry perform live ..... we was the rocker from lost season's American Idol. Well this weekend was a true music festival with 3 large stages and several small stages for a variety of entertainment. The biggest band I say was Foghat. Any classic rockers out there remember Foghat????? 'Slow Ride' was the only song of theirs that my husband and I could think of and we even joked about whether or not they would be any good. We were pleasantly surprised!!! They sound great live and had a crowd of thousands and thousands really rocking. Turns out they had several hit songs. Can you remember any of their hit songs???????

I've never heard of Foghat-- until you said Slow ride- I remember that song- Must have been before my time though- Perhaps my parents listened when I was growing up? I love festivals- Sounds like you live in a great place-- every weekend some kind of festival! So there is always something to do! How fun! Our small town puts on concerts every Saturday day- No one too big- but it's still fun to go watch!

Foghat! Man, I loved them in the late '70s and beyond, I remember seeing them on TV on Midnite Special and Don Kischner's Rock Concert. Besides Slow Ride, I remember Fool for the City and their kick-butt version of the old tune I Just Wanna Make Love to You. I'd try to see them if they were playing near me.

Well, that is just so good for you. I don't really remember Foghat at all. I was born in the early 1980's but I still don't know all the musicians around that time or before.
