Little Feat keyboardist Bill Payne gives Kyle Meredith a shout to discuss the band’s 50th anniversary and tour. The two head back to 1969 to talk about the band’s beginnings and the many sounds they tried out through the years. They revisit the ill-fated 1979 record Down on the Farm, the 1988 comeback record Let It Roll, and even discuss the possibility of new music. Speaking of new music, Payne has also been a longtime member of The Doobie Brothers and we’re told that there will be a new EP for their 50th anniversary, which is coming up next year.
