“If there was a prize for World’s Greatest Blues Boogie Band,Foghat would likely take the honor handily. With 45 years now under the band’s belt, they’ve mastered the infectious sound of full-throttle blues rocking.

“Yeah, I agree with that, we own the prize,” says bassist Craig MacGregor, known affectionately as Mac. As a group who toured almost non-stop throughout the 1970s into the ’80s and still keep almost as busy today, they earned it. “We sure have.”

“We’ve been practicing for about 50 years. It’s actually around 45, but it feels like more than that,” says band founder and drummer Roger Earl. “So it’s about time we got it right.”

Foghat has a quite muscular new album out, Under The Influence……”
