inspiration was seeing Rory Gallagher live, I had never experienced
anything like it. So loud, so gloriously on the edge of total mayhem,
yet Rory was still totally in control. How could I NOT do this too!
I’d work under my own name, with my own band. I’d do all the writing,
singing, producing, playing and leading."

Having released his new album: "Unfinished Business", Larry is

"This gig was the official launch of Larry Miller’s new album
Unfinished Business, fans of all ages came as far afield as Edinburgh
and Berlin. A newcomer to Larry’s material, having heard good things by
