Hi guys!

So I was actually looking out for Adam, but it was literally about halfway through the term that I realised this weird hippy kid who was sporting a very brave Afro hairdo (which made him look like an albino Bootsy Collins) and an Afghan coat was, in fact, the kid I had known when I was seven. Larry, I had seen around. Then one day my music teacher, Albert Bradshaw, told me that Larry Mullen played drums, and wanted to form a band.

--- was this guy really albino? I read something about him in the internet, but haven't found any info?
--- How do you understand "Larry, I had seen around"

Does it mean that he was looking for Adam, but he had already known or seen Larry somewhere at school, so he didn't need to look for him?

Thanks
Hi,

So I was actually looking out for Adam, but it was literally about halfway through the term that I realised this weird hippy kid who was sporting a very brave Afro hairdo (which made him look like an albino Bootsy Collins) and an Afghan coat was, in fact, the kid I had known when I was seven. Larry, I had seen around. Then one day my music teacher, Albert Bradshaw, told me that Larry Mullen played drums, and wanted to form a band.

The writer is saying that Adam was white but he had an Afro, which is mainly a Black person's hairstyle. This hairstyle made him look like an albino Black person. It's a little attempt at humour.
--- How do you understand "Larry, I had seen around" This is just another word order of the sentence, 'I had seen Larry around'.
Does it mean that he was looking for Adam, but he had already known or seen Larry somewhere at school, so he didn't need to look for him? Yes, basically.
