Default Re: "Legs" Larry Smith

LOVE the Bonzos. Absolutely talented and fun band they were/are. And I agree "Legs" Larry Smith (and earlier drummer Sam Spoons) should have their own profiles here.

Found this great live footage of the Bonzos at The Bilzen Jazz & Blues Festival in Germany 1968. For those of you who have only seen them miming in promo videos, TV appearances and The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour film performing "Death Cab For Cutie", you'll be in for quite a treat:

PART 1
PART 2
PART 3

The line-up:
Vivian Stanshall - vocals/recorder
Neil Innes - vocals/guitar/piano
Roger Ruskin Spear - tenor sax/electric trouser press
Rodney Slater - tenor sax
Dennis Cowan - bass
"Legs" Larry Smith - drums/vocals

Enjoy!
