Then there are the photographic years and his time as a local TV casting agent and Actor.(See photo above in a scene from The Ale House)
Larry still lives in the Liverpool area after returning to his home city after Pacific Drift had disbanded and after a spell at promoting small scale rock concerts in and around the city he spent a couple of years wandering somewhat nomadic around the U.K almost like the travellers of recent times. He finally returned to start his band publicity business and various other connected enterprises, settling down and has remained in the area until this day. He still keeps in touch with some of his musical colleagues although hasn't played himself in public for many years.
A recent comment of his:
"I think the city has now become well adjusted to it's celebrity status since the the early days of Beatle tourists and grew into it's role of being a major point of interest in the cultural activities of the U.K especially since it was the Capital of Culture in 2008. Some significant new buildings and leisure developments, hotels and shopping areas have all added to the city being a good place to live as anywhere with its vibrant night life and it's parks and open spaces, with easy access to places like New Brighton and various other Wirral attractions, not to mention Southport and Martin Mere to name but a few. It's not L.A. but thank goodness for that."
If you ever get chance to visit the area and haven' t been before, do come. You will be glad you did.
