 :mrgreen: Taking the drink out of Dr. Feelgood was a self-defeating idea! Teetotaler and pub rock don't really go together. The Blockheads bassist, btw, is still in Wilko's trio today and has been for decades. Very good bassist.

Lee Brilleaux and Wilko never kissed and made up. By the time Wilko was up for it, Lee had died from cancer. Wilko has said that he regrets missing the opportunity. That said, even if Wilko had stayed on, I think there were inherent limits to Dr. Feelgood's mass appeal, I couldn't have seen them conquer the airwaves (once Wilko had left, they relied much on outside songwriters) and they were not made for stadiums in the Midwest either, there can be only one Foghat. Cult band/small national treasure was how far they could go.

They still exist with not a single original member, but I find a Dr. Feelgood without Lee hard to swallow. That said, the "new" guy can sing circles around Lee Brilleaux' one-of-a-kind, but obviously verly limited voice.

Having a limited vocal range hasn't stopped a lot of rock stars, starting with Chuck Berry.

Or Springsteen, or - heaven help us - Dylan, who I don't think ever HAD a vocal range.
Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

Took me a while to find this. Richard Belzer in his standup days, doing his 86-year-old Bob Dylan bit, starting at the 40 second mark.
