Fred Lincoln "Link" Wray Jr
(May 2, 1929 – November 5, 2005)

Wray was the lead member of the band Link Wray and his Ray Men, which
was known for the 1958 hit song ‘Rumble’. He is ranked at number 45 out
of 100 on Rolling Stone’s list of 100 greatest guitarists of all time.

Wray poked holes in his amplifier’s speakers to make the distinctive
guitar sound on the recording. Phil Everly, after hearing the sound
suggested the title “Rumble” because the rough sound was like that
of a street fight. It was banned in several radio markets because the
term rumble was slang for a gang fight.
