Bob Bogle Of The Ventures 1934-2009

Ventures_1965_Japan_PromoBob Bogle, Ventures co-founder, bassist, and guitarist, (pictured, far right) has passed away at 75. The heart / arm mechanics of a great, driving bass player are a thing to behold, and Bob had one of the best.  Forged in the heavy twang crucible that was the Ventures, founders Bob and Don Wilson found the vein of solid rock underneath the repertoire of the day (Walk Don’t Run) preferring a pushy, lyrical, powerful approach to guitar that would launch a billion bands in a million basements. Originally the lead guitarist, Bob stepped aside and into the bass player role when they found the awesome Nokie Edwards, giving their instrumental combo full throat and giving the world the prototype of the surf-rock sound. Bogle performed with rhythm guitarist Don Wilson as if they were brothers, inseperable in their energentic readings of world-renowned tunes that sold somehwre between 200 to 500 million records worldwide. He is already missed.  So long, Bob.  Tell Dee Dee we said hello.
