R.I.P. Larry Knechtel

Larry Knechtel, a well-known studio musician who was a member of "the wrecking crew" and as such, played bass on The Byrds' first single (Mr Tambourine Man b/w I Knew I'd Want You), died on August 20, aged 69. He also played keyboards on The Byrds' Byrdmaniax LP.

He was also a member of David Gates' band Bread ('Guitar Man', 'Baby I'm-A Want You') during the seventies.
