Larry’s love of music and desire to play an instrument came from his parents. Early in life he listened to big band and jazz. That transitioned to rock. Early in high school Larry and buddy, John Dow started a rock group called The Reflections along with two other high school classmates. Eventually when The Morticians offered Larry the opportunity to drum for them he went. When The Morticians decided to “retire” he played for three other bands and spent time back on the road. He played in bands that opened for The Who, Beach Boys, Paul Revere and other national acts before starting his own band in 1972, with Jack Cave, another Mortician. Union Station performed from 1972 until 1989. When The Morticians were “exhumed” it was back to playing again. Larry and wife Kiera own and live on their ranch in Mercer County, Missouri. Larry is always willing to accommodate fans as witnessed in the pictures below.
