If we can talk about Phish we can talk about good bands also!

"It is with profound sadness and grief that we must inform Ventures' fans all over the world that Bob Bogle passed away on Sunday, June 14. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob's family at this terrible time, especially his beloved wife, Yumi, who has been the light of his life for so many years.
The Ventures' members are completely devastated, and share the pain of this loss with all our friends and fans. As more information becomes available, it will be posted here, and we hope to set up a section on this site for messages from those who wish to post them.
The music world has lost a true original and an innovator - may all our wonderful memories console us."

RIP Bob, Walk don't run

Sad to hear - The Ventures have had a huge impact on the music world. I've played Walk Don't Run and Pipeline on stage and taught several of their tunes when I was teaching guitar. They also did a very cool version of Caravan the Duke Ellington tune. They helped put Mosrite guitars on the map.

Fare the well Bob
