VIDEO - LINK IN HAMBURG 1996

I love YouTube. Link’s son Shayne just came across some EXCELLENT footage of Link and the Ace-Men doing BATMAN at a club in Hamburg Germany in 1996. Pro-shot and well worth a look. I hope the rest of this gig surfaces soon.

You can find the footage on the
VIDEOS page.

QUESTLOVE WANTS LINK IN THE ROCK HALL

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame power hitter Questlove thinks Link should be in the Rock Hall. The excerpt below is from a recent Rolling Stone interview. Thank you Questlove for supporting Link Wray.

You mentioned Sonic Youth. Who do you want to get in?

I would like to see LL Cool J get in. After reading Rick James' autobiography, he was probably more rock, more arrogant, more brash. . . Rick James, I feel is worthy of it.
Link Wray. Once I got the list [of nominees this year], then I was like, 'Jesus Christ.' Even one of the guys on the committee, was like, 'Yo, how come you're not championing your father?' Six is so hard to choose. If they would do 10, it would be so much easier.

FULL INTERVIEW HERE. Catch Questlove weeknights on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. (Link Wray emphasis is ours!)
