The band Foghat is known for classic rock radio staples such as "Slow Ride" and "Fool For The City." The group issued its latest album, Sonic Mojo, in 2023 to critical acclaim and strong sales. Guitarist Bryan Bassett says that the success took him and his bandmates by surprise. KMUW's Jedd Beaudoin recently spoke with Bassett about that album as well as the guitarist's time playing with Foghat co-founders Rod Price and Dave Peverett in the Foghat offshoot Lonesome Dave's Foghat.
