We are extremely honored to have Bill Payne of Little Feat as our guest on No simple Road this week! Payne, who co-founded Little Feat with the late, great Lowell George 35 years ago, has been Little Feat’s keyboardist – and its pilot – throughout the band’s existence, writing and singing such beloved classics as “Oh Atlanta,” “Day or Night,” “Time Loves a Hero“ and ”Gringo,“ while ”steering a ship that was rudderless,” as he puts it. He’s also contributed to hundreds of records as a sideman. The list of the artists Payne has recorded with is as lengthy as a small-town telephone book, ranging from Jackson Browne to Beck to Jimmy Buffett – and that’s just some of the “B”s.
As you can guess Bill has no shortage of stories to tell and we get down to business immediately in this wonderful conversation. We talk about creating the new single ‘When All Boats Rise’, getting the band back together, leaving The Doobie Brothers to rejoin Little Feat, how it feels to be going back to his musical roots after all these years away, and so much more!
