Where did you hear this???
Thanks for the good times.
One minute here...the next minute not here.
Thank you, Nokie.
Oh, man! Really sorry to here this. The Ventures were my main inspiration shortly after I began to play back in the day! Couldn't wait to get their next album. My first really good electric was a 1964 sunburst Jazzmaster, mainly because of them.
Deke Dickerson's FB page.
Pretty much the beginning. Wonder for how many back then it was one of the first songs they learned?
The second Ventures tune that I learned (Walk, Don't Run was the first)
Nokie & Thom Bresh having fun at Nokie's house:
I've already pretty much decided that I don't want to live any longer in a world in which the boomers are all gone. They are the gods that created my world. Passings like this just aren't another death; they're the ticking of the clock one stroke closer to my own final goodnight.
Mighty sorry to hear this. The Ventures carved out an important and damned cool place in guitar history. We won't see their like again.
I was just going to say that as a drummer the first song my first band learned was Walk Don't Run. Hadn't heard that we lost him. I got to see them in the 80's. They were great.
Me, and just 3 years ago.
RIP Mr. Surf Rider
