The rawboned and ravaged sound of fretboard pioneer Link Wray single-handedly made the guitar the weapon of choice for a whole generation of teenagers! Link's napalm-spewing guitar sound can only be duplicated by sticking one's head into the tailpipe of a NASA rocket. Dressed in a black motorcycle jacket and wielding a savage axe, Link Wray created the blueprint for everyone from the Kingsmen to the Cramps with his flame-throwing 1958 hit "Rumble" and didn't stop there. These were dangerous records that sprayed your house with hi-octane raunch 'n' roll, then dropped a cigarette lighter into the gasoline-soaked room just for kicks!
