‘Legs’ Larry Smith is a musical legend in The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, a band that influenced my woe begotten teenage years and blew my mind in 1968 with the Paul McCartney produced single I’m the urban spaceman.Some people thought that The Bonzo’s were an English version of Frank Zappa’s Mothers Of Invention, amazing satirical songs influenced by Victorian music hall jazz.
Originally invited by Vivian Stanshall to join The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band as a tuba player and tap dancer. ‘Legs’ soon became the band’s drummer contributing his unique style and talents.The Bonzo’s became a cult hit with fans including legendary DJ John Peel and the Beatles appearing in their zany 1967 TV show ‘The Magical Mystery Tour’.
‘Legs’ Larry Smith is one of the few still living members of the Bonzo’s and has gone on to work as a painter, actor and recording artist. Just out is a wonderfull 15 track album coincidentally titled Mr. Wonderful.
