Iron Butterfly / Captain Beyond Guitarist Dies

Larry Reinhardt was 63

Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt joined Iron Butterfly in 1971 after stints in bands with Dicky Betts and Berry Oakley before they joined The Allman Brothers Band.

He recorded one album with the band called Metamorphosis before they split. He and Lee Dorman then formed Captain Beyond with Rod Evans from Deep Purple and Bobby Caldwell from Johnny Winter's band.

Captain Beyond split in 1977 but reformed briefly in the late 1990s, before Reinhardt pursued a solo career, releasing his debut solo album, Rhino's Last Dance, in 2009. He released new album Back In The Day as Rhino & The Posse last year.
