Link Wray is a legend for a reason
Paul J. Escamilla | NYC | 04/16/2002

"Link Wray is one of those masters of deception. he makes it look (sound?) sooo easy. he's not playing thousands of notes a second or playing mixolydian runs over 13/8 time signatures while breathing fire.what he does (did?) is play rock'n'roll guitar better than anyone else ever has. not to take away from chuck berry, but link wray does it ALL with his six strings. he don't need words. he just plugs that axe in and rips.i swear, it's just freaky how ... and majestic he makes it all sound. the only other musicians i've heard that can make so much of so little are Miles Davis and Chet Baker.i guess when you really know the right notes to play, you ain't got to play a whole lot of 'em.every time i hear link, i just wanna run out, cover myself in tattoos, grab some cheap beers and go drag-racing."

"Mr. Guitar is probably the best one stop sampling of Wray-- which is something pure and raw! Imagine reading a great pulp novel, (Jim Thompson or David Goodis, James M Cain or Fredric Brown) and at the same time, imagine barralling down the highway after midnibht in a 57 Chevy. It's that kind of beautiful!"

"An original instumental rocker who was way ahead of his time. His music stills holds up well and this is proven by the many movies who use Links music. Anyone who pokes holes in his amp with a pencil to get the proper fuzz feedback in "Jack the Ripper" gets my vote for inovation."
