If Lowell George was still with us, he would have turned 73 years old today. Lowell is best known for his work with Little Feat. Before forming Little Feat, Lowell spent time with his band The Factory, The Standells and Frank Zappa’s The Mothers of Invention
While he was in The Factory, he made a couple of infamous appearances on a couple of 60’s TV shows. The band made an appearance on the 1960s sitcom F Troop as “The Bed Bugs”. They were also featured in an episode of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., “Lost, the Colonel’s Daughter” (season 3 episode 27). They appeared in the scene inside the A Go-Go club, with their music heard playing loudly. They received credits at the end of the episode as “‘The Factory’ Lowell-Warren-Martin-Rich, Courtesy of Universal Records”.
What do you remember him for best?
Happy Birthday Lowell. RIP and Thank You for the music.
