Apparently (the info seems a little on the unconfirmed side) Link Wray has died. Bugger.
MP3: Fire -- Link Wray (6.7mb)
MP3: Link Wray -- Jason Ringenberg (2.3mb)

You'll never see him on the White House lawn

Update: More here:
TOra! TOra! TOra!
Update 2: And still nothing in the English language news? The blogosphere at least has a little respect. He died in Copenhagen where he lived for the last few years and was buried before any announcement was made, in the Danish press, then picked up elsewhere in Europe. But, come on. Link Wray! Hell in a handbasket, I tell you, this world.
