Link Wray photoLink 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.

  1. Absolutely correct men like Link, Bo Didley, Chuck Berry and Dwayne Eddy influeced many garage bands of the early sixties taking the basic sounds from these men and fuzzying, warping and experimenting till they got something strange.
