Foghat’s Rod Price Dies
Guitarist Rod Price, founding member of the blues boogie band
The London native’s solos drove Foghat to three platinum and eight gold records during the band’s quarter-century career. After many years of touring, he settled in Wilton, N.H., in 1994.
Many in town knew Price as a loving father who never missed his son’s baseball, soccer or basketball games. Fewer people knew of Price’s musical background.
Price had played with Champion Jack Dupree, Eddie Kirkland, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Willie Dixon and Honey Boy Edwards.
In recent years, Price concentrated on his blues projects, cutting several CDs and giving private guitar lessons at his home.
