Larry started playing drums at the age of 7 and by age 9, he had played on his first record. At 18 he already had a successful drum school in the Arts Centre in Durban. He taught drums for 4 years and played with various professional bands as well as backing well known country artists such as Bobby Angel, Gene Rockwell, Clive Bruce, Barbara Ray, to name but a few. In 1980, Larry joined Hotline, which was then the biggest band in South Africa. In 1987 the band split and Larry took up a post teaching drums and percussion at The Performing Arts Workshop in Johannesburg. At this time he joined another successful band, Cinema and played with them for the next 5 years. The band had hits like “My Kinda Girl” and “Inside and Out”. After Cinema, Larry started teaching at The National School of The Arts in Johannesburg. In 2009 he joined Clint & Co., a country rock band that has been going for 10 years!
