Larry Sims

Shunned by hipster rock journalists, the collective of Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina and their top notch backing ensemble were a hit making, roots rockin’ powerhouse that, to my ears, paved the way for present day Americana and contemporary country artists.

Helming the bass chair and high harmony vocals was the late Larry Sims, a consummate pocket player whom millions grooved to on Top 40 radio in the 1970s. Commencing his career on record with The Sunshine Company, Larry anchored the duo’s seminal sides and singles, and sang lead on “Keep Me in Mind.”
