*** Why Link Wray? he was just a one hit wonder. ***

The question shouldn't be "Why Link Wray", the question should be "Why NOT Link Wray" He was an innovative guitarist who influenced many who came after him...

I'm not saying you're of this opinion, but many on here are clamouring for the induction of The Big Bopper on the grounds that he had "Chantilly Lace" and supposedly coined the term "music video"... Let's face it, nobody can say with a straight face that the Big Bopper influenced anything or anybody, except maybe those who recorded novelty records and the only real reason people might want him in is due to his being a footnote in Buddy Holly's history.

Link Wray's use of feedback and guitar style actually *did* influence guitarists, way more than anything JP Richardson ever did.
