    I actually don't think too many people know who he is.
  7. Oh wow!

    I didn't hear anything about this! :rollno:

    I still have the album, "Robert Gordon with Link Wray."

    That guy could play. :cool:

    RIP, Mr. Wray. :(


    Thanks for the heads-up, James.

    Clearly. ;)

    Last night on Conan O'Brien, the max weinberg 7 played "Rumble" during one of the breaks.
  11. I heard a cut from the Who: Live at Leeds this could clearly hear that it was derived from "Rumble"...

    Play "Rumble" next time you're in a music store as a tribue to Link Wray. You will sound 100 times cooler that any wanker in there.
