Hot! Larry Hoppen

Larry Hoppen (guitar, vocals) was a co-founder and “the voice” of the classic American band Orleans. Tens of millions know Larry’s uplifting tenor from the hits Still the OneDance With MeSpring Fever andLove Takes Time. Larry was a tremendously gifted musician – equally at home on keyboards or guitar and was fluent on bass, melodica and trumpet. He performed and/or recorded with Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Livingston Taylor, Lulu, Graham Parker, Blues Traveler, Ricky Skaggs, Steve Wariner, Michael Franks, Levon Helm, Michael Brecker, Chet Atkins, John Sebastian and Bela Fleck, among others. He joined us for this taping to talk a little about songwriting.

“I am a huge fan of this show. I have been a musician all my life, but nothing like the artists you feature on this show. All of these artists are the best in the business and an inspiration to all of us to strive to do more. I love the show. Keep up the good work.”
