New York City’s Central Park is bordered by 59th street on the south, 110th street on the north, Central Park West on the west and Fifth Avenue on the east. Their are many entrances and exits to the park and several roads that transect it. The cover of Steely Dan’s Pretzel Logic shows a pretzel vendor at the 79th street transverse on the west side of Fifth Avenue.
Jimmy Page told Rolling Stone Magazine in a 1975 interview that Little Feat was his favorite band. They have had many hits and produced many memorable songs one song was the most important one of all. Before Lowell George created Little Feat he was a member of Frank Zappa’s band The Mothers of Invention. Frank Zappa for all his outlandish, bohemian look and avant-garde music was vehemently against drugs. There are several versions of why Lowell George left the Mothers of Invention but at a 1975 concert Lowell George said that he was fired for writing the song Willin, or as he put it, writing a song about dope. Subsequently he changed the story to “it was decided that I should leave and form a band” by mutual agreement. Which ever one is true the fact is the song went on to become the signature song for one of the 70’s greatest bands.
