Richie Hayward

Five years ago today, Little Feat drummer Richie Hayward lost his battle with cancer. This is a never-before-seen photograph I took of Richie at the LA Forum. It's an interesting perspective where his left arm and stick is in relation to his right hand on the cymbal, which looks like a stretch.And yet, he's super chill, grooving and watching me take his picture. I'm also loving Lowell George on the edge of the shot.

 
 

RICHIE HAYWARD
2/6/46 - 8/12/10

I picked a cool video that features Richie more predominately than most drummers usually get. And I like that they played full songs during their sound checks. Little Feat was the consummate live act. Check out their double-live album, Waiting for Columbus.
