LINK AND THE ROCK HALL

Just woke up to the news that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame passed over Link Wray. Again. My first thought was "that sucks."

But you know, after a dozen years of letters and petitions and trying to reach out, I'm finally figuring out that it really doesn't matter.

Link doesn't need the recognition of ONE house that recognizes a wide variety of musicians under the banner of "rock and roll."

Link Wray is recognized in EVERY house, garage or basement the first time a young guitar slinger straps on his axe, turns up their amp, rips a power chord and their parents yell "TURN IT DOWN! IT'S TOO LOUD!"

That my friends, is the REAL Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
