For nearly two decades, blues/R&B/soul group Blowin’ Smoke has been one of the most in-demand, successful bands on the Southern California live music circuit. Front and center in Blowin’ Smoke is its creator, bandleader/bassist/vocalist, Larry “Fuzzy” Knight – whose impressive musical resume’ includes a decade-plus stint as bassist for one of the great SoCal bands to emerge from the psychedelic era of the Sixties, Spirit. Knight has also recently launched a new band project, Sky King, featuring some top-name musicians, all the while keeping Blowin’ Smoke going strong (in fact, Blowin’ Smoke has a “Post-Apocalyptic Pre-Christmas Concert/Dance Party” at Harvelle’s in Santa Monica on Saturday, December 22).
All Access Editor/Publisher Debra Stocker (AAM) recently sat down with Larry “Fuzzy” Knight to discuss his storied career and what musical adventures lay ahead. Here’s how the interview went.
AAM: When did you first start in the music business, and what was the first band and/or music project you were associated with?
LFK: If starting in the music business means the same as, when did I start performing as a ‘Professional Musician’? I began playing blues guitar in St. Louis (where I was born) at the age of 15 (around 1959-1960) I was lucky enough to hear the legends (before they were legends) on KATZ, Sweet 16 (Black) Radio that would broadcast ‘live’ from different nightclubs at night featuring bands such as Albert King, Ike Turner and the Kings of Rhythm, Little Milton, and Chuck Berry. I used to sneak into the clubs because I was underage and eventually started sitting in with the bands and soon I was offered a gig playing with Billy Gayles, who had recorded a hit record with Ike Turner called, “Tore Up”.

James likes to live on the edge at times and never was this more true the night when he totally put himself at risk.
It all started with Monica who had a major crush on James but he never paid her any mind because he felt like she looked like a sad puppy in the face. But one day when James was hanging out on the block with Anthony, Monica walked by and gave James the eye as she strolled through wearing her tight biker shorts.
Anthony responded and said "James did you see that big ole wagon she has" I know you gon' to handle that?' James replied that he cant get over her face. Anthony shook his head and said you are crazy "I would have a ball with all of that".
Later, that night when they hit the club scene after throwing back some Grey Goose all evening, James ran into Monica and saw what Anthony was looking at and approached her which made Monica feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
At the end of the night she asked James was he ending the night with her. Well because that "wagon" was looking extra good due to his intoxication he accepted her offer.
What James didn't know when he got to her apartment was that her Ex. was still living there. He refused to move out because he had no where to go. So he was sleeping on the couch.
As James walked by, he gave a head nod and said "what's up playa" and continued toward Monica's room, where he and Monica went at like it was going out of style.... until eventually they wore each other out.
The next morning James got up to leave and there was her Ex sound asleep on the couch.
How many of us have acted reckless due to over doing it with alcohol? James was very fortunate that he did not make the news for being apart of a double homicide, what other issue did you observe while reading this scenario?
