Fantastic, highly-influential guitarist, and one of the finest purveyors of the surf-rock guitar
style. Latter day comeback due largely to the use of "Misirlou" by Quentin Tarantino in
the opening scene of "Pulp Fiction". (Clearly not only an excellent filmmaker, but also
also a keen music obsessive as well). R.I.P.
