Alongside the band’s new music video for Lowell George favorite “Long Distance Love,” drummer Tony Leone has announced that he is the newest member of the Little Feat live band,

“Thrilled to have been aa part of this recording and video,” the former Chris Robinson Brotherhood/Phil Lesh & Friends drummer said via Facebook. “And even more thrilled to announce that I’m joining forces with some of my favorite people and musicians on the planet, as well as one of my all time favorite bands. Long Live Little Feat!!! Time to put on our Sailin’ Shoes, kick 2020 outta the way and get on with the BOOGIE in 2021!”

In late 2019, Little Feat lost founding member Paul Barrere and – like most groups – they’ve spent 2020 off the road to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
