Link was always ready to Rumble...musta been all those cracks about his pony tail
  1:33pm Brian:

Link was also one of the coolest people I've ever had the pleasure to meet. When he played Indianapolis, I got to meet him backstage before the show and he gave his bottled water to me. One of my fondest memories.
  1:41pm Tom:

Link Wray was a Shawnee Indian and only had one lung, which is why most of his tunes were instumentals.
  1:42pm benjoya:

shawnee indians don't sing?
  1:45pm Big B:

That's the best joke I'll hear all day.
