Another slide guitar virtuoso, Lowell George achieved his greatest success with blues rockers Little Feat – a band he formed (with keyboardist Bill Payne) and fronted for 10 years beginning in 1969. Preceded by a short spell with Frank Zappa’s band The Mothers Of Invention.
Unfortunately, Lowell died of a heart attack in 1979, aged just 34. Acoustics aside, you’ll be hard-pushed to find any footage of him playing any other electric than a Fender Stratocaster during his relatively short life.

"+1 for Lowell George - it's easy to forget how good he was." (From Mark via email, thanks)
