Robert Gordon with Link Wray: A Modern Elvis And The Missing Link

Peter Silverton, Sounds, 4 February 1978

LINK WRAY finishes off his instrumental street opera, 'Rumble', with an amphetamine-psychosis, note-tumbling-after-note run worthy of any guitar army hero, clambers up from his bent-knee, praying to his muse posture, strolls to the mike, shifts his heavy wad of gum into the deeper recesses of his jowl and drawls long and slow through the PA.

Total word count of piece: 1556
