Link Wray passed away earlier this month and word is only now getting out. As I look at it, garage has two main sources: Bo Diddley and Link Wray. Without them it probably wouldn’t exist.
I feel lucky to have seen Link in April in New Orleans. He didn’t shortchange us on the distortion or feedback that night – it was fantastically loud and chaotic.Here are a few great but lesser-known songs not already featured on other blogs, plus Link and his band backing Bunker Hill on Hide and Go Seek.
