    Still have it in my vinyl collection.

    If I wasn't such a lazy fuck I'd break out the vinyl every now and then.

    Look up bad ass in the dictionary and you'll find Link Wray.

    • Jack Rose cited Wray as an influence, as did Iggy Pop and Neil Young. Jimmy Page says that Link Wray had a "real rebel attitude" and credits him in It Might Get Loud as a major influence in his early career. According to Rolling Stone, Pete Townshend of The Who once said, "If it hadn't been for Link Wray and 'Rumble,' I never would have picked up a guitar." "The only people I ever really looked up to were Link Wray and Iggy Pop," said Mark E. Smith of The Fall. "Guys like…Link Wray…are very special to me."

    Podcast of Tues night's Crazy Horse show in Fresno. Shadowy figure pulling off his sweat shirt in the first 50 seconds or so was Bill Walton. Sat about 20 rows in front of him.

    Excellent show. Nice to have a musical happening in our back yard (first time they played together in about 4 yrs).

    Some great power trios (Hendrix, Cream at the top of the list), but these guys could hold their own with anyone. Felix Papplardi, Corky Lang and the great Leslie West.......Mountain.
