Old Guy Plays “Rumble”

In many ways, this song “started it all”: “Rumble”, originally performed, recorded and released by Link Wray and the Raymen in 1958. It was one of the very first guitar instrumentals. It introduced a distorted guitar tone and “power chords”. It is one of very few instrumental singles banned from the radio airwaves…presumably because of its title (which was reportedly suggested by Phil Everly, as as it had a rough sound and said it sounded like a street fight).
