Staying at a backwoods motel in Clarksdale, Mississippi, Larry Griffith experienced the same dream three nights running. In “the dream”, he was onstage ripping it up on guitar like a man possessed, working the deep delta juke joint crowd into a sweet, sweaty frenzy. Fully awakened, Larry returned to Atlanta and told his band-mate, Chicago Joe Jones, of his strange dream. Joe then gave Larry his first guitar, a no-name something or other found at a garage sale for $1. From these humble beginnings and equipped with the visual of the Mississippi delta dream, Larry strapped on, plugged in, turned up and began chipping away.
Already a top blues drummer, “the dream” dared him to forge an alliance between his rich song writing which includes elements of blues, country, soul and rock with his gumbo approach to guitar and engaging live stage performance. The result? Check that out for yourself.
