Profile:
Austin, Texas singer and guitaris who passed away passed on April 17, 1997.

In August of 1953, Larry Medlow Williams, Jr. was born in Lubbock, Texas. He was active in the church and Gospel music was a major influence growing up. He played for many years in the late 60’s and moved to Austin in 1973 to pursue his musical career. He played in a band called Showdown and after a few years joined the Cobras, one of Austin’s most influential bands.

The Cobras pre-dated the Fabulous Thunderbirds with their cookin’ R&B. Stevie Ray Vaughan was a member of the band when Paul Ray was the lead vocalist in the mid-70’s. When Paul Ray had to leave the group, Stevie struck out on his own, too. The Cobras regrouped with Denny Freeman on guitar and Junior Medlow on vocals and rhythm guitar. Stevie Ray opened many shows for the Cobras. Junior Medlow was with them from 1978-84.
