as a musician while he was a student at the 
University of Birmingham.

The Ventures are an American instrumental rock band, formed in

1958 in Tacoma, Washington, by Don Wilson (center) and Bob
Bogle
(right) (January 16, 1934 – June 14, 2009). While their

popularity in the United States waned in the 1970s, the group
remains especially revered in Japan, where they tour regularly
to this day. The classic lineup of the band consisted of Wilson
(rhythm guitar), Bogle (initially lead guitar, switched to bass),
Nokie Edwards (front) ((May 9, 1935 – March 12, 2018) initially
bass, switched to lead guitar), and Mel Taylor

Country singer who recorded “I Fall To Pieces” in 1961, as well as hits
like “Walkin’ After Midnight” and “Sweet Dreams.” She was the first
female solo artist to become part of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Her mother Hilda introduced her to music and they sang together in
