Rock Musician. A guitarist and banjoist, he was best known for his work as a member of the music ensemble "The Association". Born Hilario Ramos, Jr., into a musical family in which his father was a ukelele player, his mother was a vocalist. Larry's career could be traced back to the age of seven, when he played the ukelele in the Esther Williams picture "Pagan Love Song" (1950). After finishing his schooling, he began to perform in area coffeehouses, where he was discovered by Randy Sparks, founder of the group the 'New Christy Minstrels' and soon after he became a member. He left the ensemble in 1966 and attempted to launch a solo career, when he recorded the single "It'll Talk a Little Time" with Columbia Records. A fill-in gig with "The Association" led to his replacing Jules Gary Alexander. He made an immediate impact in the band, as he co-sang two of their biggest hits "Windy" and "Never My Love", both from the album "Insight Out" (1967). Additionally, he was a participant with "The Association", when they performed at the historic Monterey Pop Festival in 1967. Throughout the rest of his career, until his death from cancer, Ramos remained connected to "The Association". (bio by: C.S.)
