God is a God of all Comfort and he will Comfort the Family's...My condolences...

Our deepest condolences to the family. We pray that God continues to strengthen and comfort you all during this difficult period.

All of us that play acoustic bass doing that West Coast Blues thing owe an
Incredible depth of gratitude to the great Larry Taylor.
When I heard him playing on the famous Hollywood Fats record
I just loved and still love that sound he brought from the late forties to
early fifties to all of us in the eighties and beyond. What a giant!

I was playing a canned heat album the day before I heard that he passed. He was an Icon and though I never knew him or his family I want the family to know he touched a world of people with his musical talent. It is very sad to be losing many of our wonderful talented brothers and sisters from an era that tried to instill peace and love. All my prayers to the family.

Rip ! Thanks for the music !

Love and Blessings to Larry Taylor and his family as he transitions this life.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
