According to a post on social media, beloved keysman Bill Payne will pivot away from his longstanding gig with The Doobie Brothers to commit his attention “100%” to Little Feat.

“I truly enjoyed playing music with the gang,” Payne says of The Doobies. “I congratulate them on being admitted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. They are unquestionably deserving of that honor.”

Payne goes on to say that “Little Feat is now officially back and ready to tour” and “the future for Little Feat looks, and is, indeed, bright.”

Little Feat recently announced a special 45th anniversary tour for their live opus Waiting for Columbus.
