I take it back - La Grange has a double bass fill, but I learned to play it with a single pedal. :)

La Grange was recorded in 72' back then there were no double pedals and Beard played a single bass drum throughout most of the 70's. A demo of the fill here @1:07

You can play any single bass fill with double pedals and if you're good you can play a lot of double bass fills on a single pedal.

If given the choice I'd rather have a cowbell on my kit.
