I love telling it and I think so far that the audiences are really enjoying it,” said Kane

interviews with the guys is a real treasure. You could have heard a pin drop in the audience”

  1. Larry Kane was washed up years ago. The fact that he is still kicking and alive is a credit to his longevity.

    On one hand, it is somewhat pathetic that he is still hanging on to his past. On the other hand, it is equally as admirable and says something about staying power. That being said, his blog ( is pretty lame.


  2. Hard to believe after all these years, LK is still milking the Beatles.

  3. Hard to believe that LK is still milking ANYTHING after all these years.

    He sure has gotten plenty of mileage out of the CN8/Comcast Network tires.

    Maybe he and Lynn Doyle have a little somethin’ somethin’ ?

  4. Ever notice how insipid the Beatles’ lyrics were before they linked up with Larry on the USA tour? She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    It was after they met Larry that they became more sophisticated in their writing. He must have been a major influence!

  5. Sorry, WJ. Lynn only gives out somethin-soemthin to advance her career.
