Guitar great Link Wray passed away at the age of 76. CNN provided a nice recap of his life and career. The article also included some great quotes about his influence on other guitar players. “He is the king; if it hadn’t been for Link Wray and Rumble, I would have never picked up a guitar,” the Who’s Pete Townshend wrote. And Neil Young once said “if I could go back in time and see any band, it would be Link Wray and the Raymen.”
Rest in peace Link.
