Many on this board know of my strong apreciation for the band "Captain Beyond", due in part to the incredible performance of guitarist Rhino.
I just found out 3 days ago that Rhino was a friend of Gregg Allman's, having come from the circle of musicians that started their careers in Florida.
Apparently Rhino, Dickie Betts, and Berry Oakley were in a band early on, pre Allman Brothers.
I was asked to pass along to Gregg that Rhino was very ill and failing fast and that it would do him a world of good to hear from Gregg.
I mentioned this to Gregory two nights ago and Gregg, having been unaware of Rhino's condition said he would definitely call him.
I just found that Larry passed away yesterday after 2 days in the hospital.
Rhino was an extraordinary guitarist with a star studded career playing and recording with groups such as Iron Butterfly, Captain Beyond, among many. many others. Rhin0's was a name that encouraged me to buy an album sight-unseen if I saw his name on it.
RIP Larry. _________________ B C-ing U!
