Damn it. And men like Bill Bennett still walk the earth.

Wow. This blows.

What's worse is how unknown this influential man is. I was out of town and a friend SMS'd me with the news. I got home after the 4 hour drive, and tried to look EVERYWHERE to find the news... Nowhere, except blogs.

Rest in peace, Link. I will always remember you in Detroit, onstage, rocking out, screaming into the mic, "One lung!!!"

My pics from that show can be found here:

To borrow a quote from Jack Palance, "Link Wray crapped bigger than Justin Timberlake".

Nobody played guitar like Link Wray and not many looked so cool either.Like Kim's write up about the gig she saw,I saw Link and his band in '96 on his U.K.tour.He was appearing at what would probably be known as a bar in America,in Britain they are known as pubs.There was maybe fifty people in the place but Link Wray played as if he was at Madison Square Gardens.The place was torn apart and he looked about fifteen years younger than he was at the time.With his passing a true rock n' roll original has gone,but he will not be forgotten.Bless you Link,and thanks.

RUMBLE ! 1958 ! Everything we love that's loud begins here !
