Wikipedia – Foghat:
The band initially featured Dave Peverett (“Lonesome Dave”) on guitar and vocals, Tony Stevens on bass and Roger Earl on drums, after all three musicians left Savoy Brown in 1971. Rod Price, on guitar/slide guitar, joined after he left Black Cat Bones in December 1970. The new line-up was named “Foghat” (a nonsense word from a Scrabble-like game played by Peverett and his brother) in January 1971.
