Hi, I'm Larry Livermore. I grew up in Detroit, worked in steel mills and auto factories, got in a lot of trouble, and wound up in California, where I played in punk bands, started a fanzine, and got in a bunch more trouble. I gave Tre Cool his name and his first drum lesson, watched my little solar-powered record label turn into a multi-million dollar business, then walked away from it all. Now I've written a book about it, which is available from Amazon or directly from my publisher, signed by me. I'm looking forward to talking with you and answering your questions for the next hour or two, so let's get started!
Ok, I've got to take off in about 5 or 10 minutes, so get your last questions in now!
Sorry, I'd love to stick around for another hour, but I've got someone coming to film me for a documentary about Ann Arbor in the 60s and 70s, so I've got to sign off now! I've really enjoyed this, and hope we can do it again one day! So long now!
