Ladies And Gentlemen, Here's The Sonics!

The Great Northwest has done wonders for Rock n' Roll, from the Kingsmen of Louie, Louie fame, to Jimi Hendrix, to Kurt Cobain. Often overlooked are the Sonics, who really wrote the book on a certain, Early/Mid-Sixties garage sound.

And from Washington came the Ventures. Greatuest surf sound ever. Lead guitarist Bob Bogle has died, at 75. Crap.

I'm not surprised that they were from Washington too. There must be something in the water up there.

Or maybe it's the falling water! All that rain might give some people the idea to stay inside and practice.
