'Lonesome' Dave Peverett info (The Musicians' Olympus)
'LONESOME' DAVE PEVERETT info
Dave Peverett (vocals, guitar)
Great guitarist, also a very
good singer, he'll be always remembered by two of the bands where he played:
Savoy Brown and Foghat.
Dave Peverett was born on
April 16, 1943 in London, England. His musical beginnings were in the bands
The Cross Ties Blues Band (with Chris Youlden), and Les Questions.
He joined mythical blues
band Savoy Brown in 1967.
Chris Youlden (vocals)
Kim Simmonds (guitar)
Dave Peverett (guitar, vocals)
Rivers Jobe (bass)
Bob Hall (keyboards)
Roger Earl (drums)
After one album, Getting
to the point, Rivers Jobe left, and Tony Stevens was recruited.
A new album, Looking in,
and Kim Simmonds is left alone when the remaining members leave to form
another great band, Foghat. (For those wanting to know, Kim kept on with
Savoy Brown with new members, some of them to be covered in my Olympus:
Andy Pyle and Paul Raymond).
Note: in 1981 it was released
a live album from that Savoy Brown lineup, called Just live.
And, as I've told before, the
sad ending to a great career is Dave's death on February 7, 2000. He was
suffering from cancer for a while, but a pneumonia made things too critical.
Rest in peace, Lonesome Dave!
