Link Wray's legend is true, the man ROCKS.
I got a chance to see the man last month in Champaign, Il at a
cool small rock venue/bar called Mable's. The Bottletones opened
and set the stage for the whole night. Mr. Wray enjoyed them so
much he even wore their t-shirt while on stage. Of course he had
to modify it by ripping of the sleeves.
The crowd was the perfect size..not to small and not sold out!
Which just shows haw lame the scene can get in Champaign. I mean
friday night and the gig didn't sell out????? Well anyway, sorry
I went on a stupid rant there but all I could say is those who
witnessed the show had a great time. Here are some pics that we
here at MSIG just scanned in 1997, they could be found
on the left side of this page, always to the left...
The pictures on the right are from the Double Door show from earlier
this year in 2000. When I remember the date I will add it....
More to come later...
