Little Feat Guitarist Goes Off the Road for Hep C Treatment
Paul Barrere, the longtime guitarist for the rock group Little Feat,
will take a leave of absence from the band later this year to receive
treatment for hepatitis C, according to a statement by Barrere. He was
diagnosed with hep C in 1994.
"For the past 20 years I have managed to control the effects of the
disease with lifestyle changes and the love and support of my family
and friends," said Barrere. "During this time I’ve had regular check
ups with a team of specialists at UCLA.
These doctors have now advised that I should begin a treatment designed
to eradicate the virus from my body. The treatment requires that I stay
off the road for the next year, in order to give it the best possible
chance for a successful result."
