Time Loves a Hero: Lowell George
Adam Sweeting, The Guardian, 30 August 2000
THE EAGLES SOLD more records and Steely Dan went down better with intellectuals, but the best American band of the 1970s was Little Feat, led by Lowell George until a year before his death in 1979. A songwriter, studio innovator, bluesman, crooner and slide guitar ace, George was one of rock's most brilliant stars. He always surpassed the supposed limitations of rock music; Jackson Browne described him as "the Orson Welles of rock".
