Link Wray Passed Away

If there was ever a bloke who could make his guitar sound like gasoline in the sand, it was Link Wray.

The big guys agree:
"He is the King; if it hadn't been for Rumble, I would have never picked up a guitar." - Pete Townsend
"If I could go back in time and see one concert it would be Link Wray and His Raymen" - Neil Young
"Rumble is the best instrumental ever.” - Bob Dylan
Dylan opened his set at the Brixton Academy last night with Rumble (yes, click it and you'll hear a bootleg of the performance!).

Also, you can listen/download some of Wray's instrumental hits and read more about the power chord rock master at PCL LinkDump.
