LINK WRAY. Father of the Power Chord. Creator of Distortion.
LINK WRAY and the Ray Men’s groundbreaking song RUMBLE was banned from radio airplay for fear it would incite teenage gang violence. A remarkable feat for a song with no words.
LINK WRAY was the first Native American rock star with RUMBLE selling over a million copies in 1958.
LINK WRAY is in the top 50 of the 100 GREATEST GUITARISTS selected by Rolling Stone magazine.
LINK WRAY has influenced many great musicians including Jimmy Page, Pete Townsend, Neil Young, Iggy Pop, Stevie Salas, Deke Dickerson, Rudi Protrudi, Poison Ivy, Eddie Angel, and so many more.
Some say without Link Wray there would be no Rock & Roll
