Larry Taylor

Larry “The Mole” Taylor is among the most prolific bassists from the classic rock era.

Renowned for his tenure in Canned Heat, Larry was also a top-tier session cat who has distinguished himself on sides by John Mayall, Tom Waits, Harvey Mandel, Kim Wilson, J.J. Cale, Ry Cooder, The Monkees, and Albert King to cite an extreme few.

An expressive performer – as evidenced in the iconic Woodstock film – dig Larry’s killer bass solo on “Fried Hockey Boogie” from the aptly titled Boogie with Canned Heat (1968) .
