machine-gun bass[edit]

the passage on machine-gun bass is totally out of place for an entry on larry graham. especially within the first paragraph of "biography." i have a feeling somebody deleted a slap-bass wiki, and stuck the text into larry graham's bio section. i don't think i even want to know the truth.

unsigned/unheaded comment[edit]

One of the main legends of the 80`s

Living with Prince?[edit]

I heard this rumor that he was living on Prince's ranch -- not in a sexual way. Can anyone confirm? Kent Wang 15:42, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Apparently he talked Prince into becoming one of Jehovah's Witnesses. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:48, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

AFAIK Graham has been a spiritual mentor for Prince, who was raised JW. Prince had a horrific experience as a father, and Graham helped him as he rediscovered his faith in the aftermath. That's all unsourced, and possibly doesn't belong in the main article, but is an interesting aspect of his career. He certainly had a front row seat on Sly's decline.

Grand Central Station[edit]

Not that it matters, but Grand Central Station properly refers to a post office, not a train station. (They're both in the same building.) The train station is Grand Central Terminal.

Addition to recording career[edit]

-- 01:51, 22 April 2007 (UTC)Larry Graham also did two songs on the soundtrack of the rotten 1983 movie, the Lonely Lady. The songs were great, the movie wasn't. It was never issued on cd. And the old vinyl soundtrack lp has someone else doing the songs, one Ellis Hall jr. Anyone know why? Are these recordings available anywhere? Can someone add this to his biography, even if he may want to keep it quiet, because of the movies' notoriety? The songs are cool! I remember the title track being sung very cool, in his deep resonant voice.

"who is African American"[edit]

I know it's stupid, but I added this phrase (with its footnote) because a Wikipedia editor keeps removing people from categories related to African Americans unless reliable sources within the article identify the person as African American. Should be a simple case of WP:BLUE, but some people are thick. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 21:22, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
