It’s amazing the amount of publicity you get when you’ve been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Ventures have been performing for about fifty years now, and they’ve never been as famous as now.
On the Fox News Channel (Fox & Friends)
Some sites of interest:
Nokie Edwards (long time lead guitar for the group)
Gerry McGee (long time lead guitar for the group, alternating with Nokie)
*One of the two original founders, Bob Bogle, was evidently too sick to attend; Gerry McGee was also unable to attend (yeah, these guys are pretty old now; Bogle still records with them but doesn’t do any touring; McGee still records and tours).
