    Y'know as a sixties kid, we were in better shape and we seemed more independant and inventive...music like Link's was a backdrop to a way of life that won't return.

    Link Wray - Ace Of Spades.

    The Who were recording in the next studio to Link Wray and looked in on each other..as per -Keith Moon stripped off bollock naked in Studio One..much to Link's amusement..this song was The Who's tribute to Mr.Wray and that crazy time.

    The Who - Relay or Waspman.

    As previously posted rock dudes about 18 months ago I bought a cheap £3 Link Wray cd/dvd of a rowdy gig filmed and recorded at Highbury corner in north London back in 1996 and it-
    BLEW ME F**KING HEAD OFF!!!!!.

    "Link stalking the stage with his customised electric guitar and giving the rowdy crowd plenty of screaming feedback and whammy bar use on his well known songs, it's Rock & Roll dudes!!."


    Subsequently if I come across any of Link's stuff I buy it regardless.


    ***As is stated on the dvd Link's 'Rumble' the most important 'D' chord in Rock & Roll history.***
