Birth of the Power Chord

Winter Branches

Driving home from work, I heard that Link Wray had died. Pretty much everyone has heard Rumble--the first single released by Link Wray and the Wraymen--at some point in time, and knows the sound of the first power chord ever recorded by heart, even if they don't know that it is the pioneering work of Wray.

Link Wray - Rumble
Link Wray - Deuces Wild
