Keep Me In Mind

Posted on December 14, 2014

Just found out that Larry Sims, our original bassist for Loggins & Messina passed away.

Larry was a very talented, likeable n easy-going guy; no stress, no hassle. I think that attitude served him well as he coasted through the intensity that was L&M in the early 70s. I'll always remember his easy way and positive attitude with fondness.

He was an excellent bass player, but his voice is what set him apart. His smooth vocals were sometimes mistaken for Stephen Stills', as on the last 32 bars of "Golden Ribbons." But my favorite performance is Larry's lead vocal on Jim Messina's tune, "Keep Me In Mind."
