Lawrence Alexander, King of the Guitar

Lawrence is 6′ 4″ of beautiful guitar. He has written the music for many of the Charlies finest tunes.

I first met Big Larry at school but I didn’t really know him there.It was a couple of years later that I decided to form a rockabilly band and I asked him to be the lead guitarist – the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

I had bought my first electric guitar (a black Kay Les Paul) copy from Larry a while before, I met him in the street a few days later and he gleefully informed me that he had spent the 40 quid I gave him on a SG copy which he obviously considered a vastly superior instrument – But It Wisnae!!!

Anyhow Lawrence was a much better lead player than me. He had a careful studied style which perfectly counterbalanced my somewhat frantic and loose rhythm playing.
