Very sorry to hear this. 'On Parole' is a great album and his guitar work is impeccable. I used to love playing along with it and was proud when I 'mastered' any of Larry's licks. He was no 'One Chord Wonder', although he did produce The Adverts first two singles.

Tim dedicated the "Gary Gilmore's Eyes/Bored Teenagers/One Chord Wonders" end section of tonight's show to Larry Wallis.

I asked Tim about him and he said that he was a lovely, helpful guy and that's why they also asked him to produce their second single.

Tim also reminded me of the story of The Adverts heading for the studio for the GGE/BT single without a producer, so they stopped off to call Larry to see if he was free. He was - and his approach was to turn up with a crate of beer!

I guess that's why the production is credited to The Adverts and Larry Wallis...

Sad news just in... from Eddie & the Hotrods FB site:

It is with extreme sadness we announce the passing of the legendary Barrie Masters.

As you can expect, this sudden news is a huge shock to the band and family.

We welcome tributes posted to our Facebook and Twitter sites which will be passed on to Barrie's family. More news will follow.

No mention of Barrie on the national news tonight, very poor.

Lovely touch at the end of tonight's Theatre of Hate gig in Leicester. The second the show finished and they said goodbye, "Do Anything You Wanna Do" came blaring out.

Nice one guys.

R.I.P. Ginger Baker
https://louderthanwar.com/ginger-baker-rip-master-drummer-dies-at-80/

Quote
One of the greatest drummers in the history of rock music, Ginger Baker, has died at the age of 80. Often called the first superstar rock drummer, Baker brought in a myriad of new influences to the form from jazz to African drumming and fully explored the possibilities of drumming – bringing it forward from the mere backbeat of his predecessors. ...

Perhaps best known for his work in Cream – with the trio being the first virtuoso rock groups formed of great players to push forward the boundaries he also had along and varied careers that saw him play with PiL, of all bands, and many other projects.
