Larry Taylor (Canned Heat)

Larry “The Mole” Taylor was among the most prolific bassists of the classic rock era.


Renowned for his tenure in Canned Heat, Larry was also a top-tier session cat who has distinguished himself on seminal sides by John Mayall, Tom Waits, Harvey Mandel, Kim Wilson, J.J. Cale, Ry Cooder, The Monkees, and Albert King to cite an extremely select few.


Larry’s voltage enhanced weapons of choice were primarily Fender Precision, and Fender Jazz. An expressive performer – as evidenced in the iconic Woodstock film, Mole also worked the doghouse
