An Interview with Bill Payne of Little Feat

This is a cross-post from my personal blog but due to his influence on me and the topic, I felt it was worth posting here as well.

It was my pleasure and honor to interview Bill Payne, keyboardist and founding member of the iconic American band, Little Feat. They have just wrapped up celebrating the 45th anniversary of one of the great live albums, Waiting for Columbus, and will soon start The Albums tour, coinciding with new releases of Sailin’ Shoes and Dixie Chicken, doing one night of each per city.

Thanks to David Holloway (and Paul Bindig, whose absence allowed me to fill in) of for letting me participate in this interview. I’ve been a fan of Little Feat and Bill since my college days, which coincided with their reunion. Since then, I’ve both gone forward with them as well as back through their earlier catalog and loved every minute of it, so getting to interview Bill was a huge deal for me. Fortunately, I seemed to have kept my cool and didn’t go “Chris Farley” on him.

You can find these episodes of The Keyboard Chronicles wherever fine podcasts are streamed, as well as on YouTube where I have provided the links below.
