Larry Rice, a renowned mandolin player, began his bluegrass career by playing in his father’s band, the Golden State Boys. He later formed his own band (the Haphazards) with brothers Tony and Ronnie. In the ’70s, he co-founded the New South, with J.D. Crowe, Doyle Lawson, Red Allen and Bobby Slone. After leaving the band in 1976 (Ricky Skaggs replaced him), Rice toured with Dickey Betts. His first solo album, Hurricanes and Daydreams (1985), was followed by Time Machine. Notions and Novelties appeared in 1996.
Larry Rice died in 2006 after a long battle with cancer.
