    Little Feat Drummer Richie Hayward Dies Waiting for a Liver Transplant

    [​IMG]

    Richie Hayward, co-founder of the Little Feat, an eclectic jamband that maintained a strong cult following throughout the decades, has died. He was 64.

    The drummer had been suffering from liver cancer and died Thursday at a hospital near Vancouver, Canada, after complications of pneumonia, his publicist, Bridget Nolan, confirmed Friday.

    "He was waiting for a liver transplant," said Nolan. Over the past year, benefits had been staged on Hayward's behalf; he had no health insurance.

    In a letter to fans last August, Hayward wrote about his predicament, but sounded hopeful: "My intent is to come back to the band, as soon as I am physically able. Your love and support will mean a lot to me, more than I can say. I love and will miss you all, and I will see you again on the proud highway."

    He last performed with the band on July 11.

    Hayward helped form Little Feat in 1969, along with frontman Lowell George, Bill Payne and Roy Estrada. The jamband mixed a variety of genres including rock, country, jazz and blues, and were known for songs like "Willin"'. The group fell apart in 1979 after George died, but reformed in 1987, and had been a fixture on the touring circuit.

    Playing the drums since he was a kid, Hayward was best known for his 40 years of playing in the California-based southern rock band. After auditioning for Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention then joining the short-lived Factory, Hayward formed Little Feat with keyboardist Bill Payne, bassist Roy Estrada and original frontman Lowell George in 1969.

    After releasing their self-titled debut in1971, the band made six more albums but split soon after George's death in 1979. They reformed in 1987 and recruited Craig Fuller as the lead vocalist. Hayward also recorded and performed with numerous musicians including Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Carly Simon, Tom Waits, John Cale, Peter Frampton and Robert Plant.

    Hayward remained as a member of Little Feat up until 2009, when he was diagnosed with liver cancer. "[Richie's] hanging in there," guitarist Paul Barrere told Spinner in October. "He's trying to be as positive as possible. He's sad that he can't be on the road. One of us calls him at least once a day just to keep his spirits up."

    Before Heyward passed away, his bandmates, fellow musicians and fans organized many fundraisers to offset his medical costs, since he had no health insurance. He gave his last live performance in July when he joined Little Feat at the Vancouver Island Music Festival.

    He died from Liver Cancer, if it were Cirrhosis then it would probably be from drinking.

    Was never a big Little Feat fan. Aren't they Dixie Chicken or some bullshit like that? I actually thought this was referring to the black guy who played at Woodstock. Freedom and motherless children and some other shit. I could easily google it but I prefer to live in ignorance. Perhaps it's time to leave the bar and go home. I barely know what I'm babbling about at this point.

    Thank you my friend. I was close. I will YouTube it now, watch it, and then get confused why I cared enough to even comment. marijuana is a hell of a drug.
