Sadly, guitarist Link Wray has died aged 76. I won't go on about what he invented cos everyone knows that Mark E Smith invented everything. Just ask Mark E Smith. Why, just last Saturday Nark E invented football pools announcer Bill Hamilton.

Anyways, when I think of Link Wray I always think of John Peel surprising me by throwing in some dirty great swampy guitar tune on his show, probably while I was waiting, pause button at the ready to tape Bastard Kestrel in session.

You will know Rumble by Link Wray, though. You probably just won't know that you know it.

Listen to Switchblade as well. Just 'cos.
Link Wray : REAL swagger,
not the pretend stuff.
