Bill Payne of Little Feat

This afternoon on my KMOX show, I talked with Bill Payne of the classic rock band Little Feat, who will be at the Ameristar Casino in St. Charles on 6/23.

We talked about what it's like to be a rock pianist, back to the days before he met Lowell George and formed the band, when he was living out of his car.  We also discussed how he was one of the first musicians to play two keyboards at once on stage, who influenced him, how the band's songwriting worked, and what he thinks of fans who tape, trade, and download Little Feat concerts and music.

Listen to the converation here.

Bill also has a new solo jazz CD, "Cielo Norte."
