Larry Morris Obituary, Death – Larry Morris was a man who exemplified his time period and is remembered as one of the most important personalities in the history of New Zealand music. He was exceptionally gifted as a vocalist and a songwriter, and he was one of a kind. We remember Larry’s passing last night with a heavy heart because he was a good friend.
An important interview with Larry was conducted by Murray Cammick in 2001 for Real Groove magazine. This interview was a turning point in the telling of Larry’s narrative. AudioCulture is responsible for the republishing of:
“As soon as I woke up, my mother would go in with the newspaper and tell me, ‘Son, you really need to find a job.’ I happened to see this tiny advertisement that read, “Stars wanted, can you sing?” Promotions by Benny Levin.’ I went in for an audition, and while Benny Levin and Russell Clark didn’t think I was all that wonderful, the guys in the backup band thought I was the bee’s knees, and they asked me if I’d join their band, the Rebels, and that’s how it all started.”
Everyone had a Larry Morris tale or two, and there is no question that they will all be retold again in the days that are to come. Larry had so many friends because he entertained and enthralled people for almost five decades; this will cause individuals to have a lot of friends. All of those who knew him and his family are in our thoughts and prayers at this time.
