The BEAT DADDYS Larry Grisham is a survivor, plain and simple. Both personally and professionally, he has overcome obstacles most people will never face. Time and again he not only met these challenges, but rose to them and came out the other side stronger for the experience. But isn't that what the Blues is all about? Larry was born in southern Indiana in 1953 and moved about much as a child, attending sixteen different schools before graduating from high school.
