LINK WRAY was a rock and roll trail blazer. A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee, Link was the first to use intentional distortion in a rock recording. Link is also credited with inventing the “power chord.” His song RUMBLE - an instrumental - was banned for fear it would incite violence. Rock and roll would never be the same after Link Wray. From Bruce Springsteen to Iggy Pop, Jimmy Page to Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, dozens of rock and roll legends cite Link as a career influence. Heavy metal, surf, grunge, garage…they can all trace their roots to Link Wray. Link and the Ray Men spent the early ’60’s playing frat parties on the college circuit along the US East Coast. Two classic Link tracks have recently surfaced documenting this time in Link's career. We present them to you at their lo-fi, revved-up, photo-punk best in our release LIVE IN ’63 at Cornell University!
