Charles Larkey (Carole King, The Doors)


An LA based electric / upright session player, Charles Larkey is most noted for his stellar work with his former wife, the former Ms. Carol Joan Klein, with whom he waxed several seminal sides.


A dexterous bassist that excelled in the pocket and plied superb counterpoint in the service of the singers and their songs, Charles also anchored releases by The Fugs, The Doors sans Mojo, Paul Williams, Peter Allen, B.J. Thomas, and The City with Carole and guitarist Danny Kortchmar, among others.
