Foghat/Christopher Milk: Whisky A-Go-Go, Sunset Strip, LA

Metal Mike Saunders, unpublished, August 1972

I WALKED IN late, so for all purposes Foghat were the opening group. People take their album seriously because Dave Edmunds was involved with it, but Alvin Lee’d sue Foghat’s ass if he ever saw their live show. Lead singer/guitarist Lonesome Dave is a wind-up Alvin Lee look-alike, sound-alike, and grimace-alike, and it all sounds like this: boogie boogie boogie boogie boogie boogie boogie boogie boogie.
