I just learned that Larry died yesterday. Very sad to see him go. Wonderful man. In small tribute to a real old school Dublin gent, here is the documentary from which the below clip was taken, in its entirety. Thanks a million, Larry.
Larry Lynch has been hiring out sound equipment to bands from his Soundhire shop in Ranelagh since 1971. In the 1970s he supplied the likes of Thin Lizzy, Horslips and later The Boomtown Rats.
This is an extract from a recent interview I did with Larry, where he reminisces about being on the road with Horslips, and in particular how the judicious parking of his van full of gear across the gateway of a field in Kilkenny became an important financial negotiating tool.
