REMEMBERING LARRY CORNWALL and LARRY’S LOVE FEST at the Gaslamp on May 20

17505136_10211256513682063_4609192122991038187_o

Larry Cornwall was truly one of the nicest people ever and was loved by thousands.    I met Larry in 2013 at The Roxy prior to his stunning performance on AXS TV’s The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands in ALICE IN COOPERLAND – Tribute To Alice Cooper.

In 2014, Larry returned in Season 3’s AXS TV’s The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands as drummer Tommy Lee with TRUE 2 CRUE – A TRIBUTE TO MOTLEY CRUE

Later in the year, Larry needed heart surgery.   Alice Cooper sent the coolest get well message to Larry.

Shortly thereafter, Larry and I met up to attend a benefit concert event for St. Jude Children’s Hospital, where Alice Cooper would be performing.   Larry drove a long distance to Moorpark and got to meet Alice and thank him for the video.  A true golden moment.

We then rocked out just a few feet from the stage to a cast of legendary rockers.   The afternoon and evening couldn’t have been any better.

Larry had mentioned he also had some other medical problems and a benefit at the GasLamp was put on to offset some of the costs with helping Larry:
