Coryell had a rock bank in the '60s called the Free Spirits.

A couple of years ago I was in a car rental place at Newark Airport 
and a couple guys came in with carts loaded with guitars, and 
noticing that I was wearing a Rhino Records T-shirt one of them 
struck up a conversation. He turned out to be Larry Coryell, and the 
other guy was his son Julian. I mentioned that I owned a copy of the 
Free Spirits album, Coryell's jaw dropped, and he said "I don't even 
have a copy of that!"  I ended up making him a CD.
