Fred Tackett of Little Feat played a beautiful instrumental piece on classical guitar in honor of his longtime band mate, Paul Barrere. Paul Barrere died at the age of 71 on October 26. Video of Tackett’s tribute was shared on Little Feat’s Facebook page and on YouTube.

Tackett joined Little Feat in 1987 and has been a member of the band ever since. “Well here’s that rainy day,” said Fred after his performance and then added, “Goodbye brother Paul. We rocked it, you were funky.”
