Wikipedia : This day (March 2, 1948), in Torrance, California, is born Larry Carlton, an American guitarist.

@last.fm : Like so many other Los Angeles studio musicians, guitarist and composer Larry Carlton was faced with a choice a number of years back: whether to go solo and develop a name for himself under his own name or to continue the less risky, more lucrative existence as a session guitarist, making good money and recording with prominent musicians.
