Happy Birthday Larry! A man comfortable even in an environment he knew little about (like a baseball diamond) because he was always so cozy in his own skin! Another lesson taught and learned from the life of one of the great ones.

Larry really liked Timbales...and the crazy time signatures that seem to be the norm with this music. Hope you like it too.....

Here's a Throwback post that takes us back to 1987 with Peter Escovedo, Sheila E. and Tito Puente, all on Timbales! (Rebbecca Mauleon is on piano!) Did you ever see any of these greats perform live in person? And who can name the gent on the congas?

Stay Inspired! See more fun, inspiring drumming/percussion videos from over 130 countries around the world at www.facebook.com/DrumTalkTV/videos

Study Shows Photographers Are Among The Sexiest Of Creative Types - DIY Photography

UH....DUH!!!!!

Good news, photographers, it turns out we’re some seriously sexy mother jumpers. Though we’re still pretty ugly compared to musicians, we are more attractive than comedians and poets. The study, conducted by the University of Pennsylvania’s Scott Barry Kaufman, lists the ability to take “artistic ph...

Larry was always clowning around even on my important day! He snuck in to the bridesmaid area before the wedding and said "Elaina you have to do a shot of tequila!" I told him "what do you want me to be crawling down the aisle?" He laughed and bugged me endlessly as only Larry could do and I promised him I would do it after the ceremony. Here's the picture! I'll never forget all the laughter and fun that he brought to our lives. If you were down Larry would boost you up! His laughter was infectious and his gift of gab was truly that, a gift that all of us that had the pleasure to know him were given!

So, you wanna know what Clay's been up to? Here's a link to the Malibu Surfside News electronic edition. Take a look at the feature on page 27. If Larry were around we'd be taking stacks of these newspapers from every liquor store and available venue and passing them out to friends. Enough...take a look at page 27!!!

From Carl Stein: While culling through a mountain of memories, here's a throwback throwdown for you. Always making friends...another, "ten seconds of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure!" (But he only said that as instructions...kind of how a magician will reveal a trick... for those of us who would be embarrassed. Larry never was because making new friends was so natural to him!!!)

What better day than today to tell your favorite Larry story??? Go for it...

11 years ago though it seems like yesterday. Thoughts come and go all the time but the memories never go away. There's a party in heaven...and we're all invited!

Jon Fischer: I am standing in front of the exhibit right now looking at Larry's name and remembering our good friend. The many times he made me laugh........ now with my eyes filled with tears. Your friends miss you Larry. (From Jon Fischer's 1st visit at the fallen journalist exhibit at the Newseum in Washington D.C.)

Happy Birthday Larry❤️
Any time you see or use one of those multiple mic holders thank Larry Greene. Some time in the early 80s Larry came into the KCBS ENG Field Shop and was asking me for some drills and 1" or so hole punches. He had fished out a piece of aluminum sheet from the scrap box and started drilling holes and then widening them out with the hole punches. Then he added a mic stand adapter and rubber gromets to the holes and proclaimed that he would never have to clean gaffers tape off of his mic after a press conference again! Always thinking and still missed!
September always feels the same.
From my new rescue dog that reminds me so much of Larry & the Greene’s Punch who made his debut at the surprise 40th Birthday party they threw me (my guy Coach watches News... like this pursuit, but prefers baseball games), to memories of Disneyland media nights where Larry had to have pics with the characters, to the irony of me covering Dodgers baseball now, just like him decades ago... I think about Larry every day. Some lost a friend, others lost a friendly face... but we all lost a legend. We were all lucky to have lived with him. Today is a little bit more poignant than most, but Larry would have had us laughing! Wherever you are, I know it’s the best place to be.
Happy B-day LG...here's a throwback with you & Hartman!
Happy Birthday Larro.
