Fred Tackett

Hailing from Arkansas, Fred Tackett worked as a side man on many Little Feat albums before becoming a full member of the band for Let It Roll. Along with his fine guitar work, Fred's mandolin and trumpet have become a featured part of the Little Feat sound.

Robert Palmer writes about Fred Tackett's early years in Rock and Roll: An Unruly History

In addition to his work with the Feat, Fred has a very large discography of work with other artists.
