Sad news indeed... he and the Ventures they helped pave the way for instrumental guitar bands for years to come. Coincidentally, the Ventures never considered themselves a surf band at all, yet they got associated to that genre. Their spirit still lives on in band like Los Straitjackets (whom we were fortunate enough to see at Ohana a couple years back!).
