    Who are your guitar heroes? Eric Clapton? George Harrison? Stevie Ray Vaughan? Brian Setzer?



    Excellent, but who are THEIR guitar heroes?



    THE VENTURES!



    Comprised of guitarists Don Wilson and Nokie Edwards (later replaced by Gerry McGee), bassist Bob Bogle, and the late drummer, Mel Taylor (replaced by his son, Leon), The Ventures are the highest-selling and most popular instrumental rock band the world has ever known. They first arrived on the music scene in 1960 with a cover of Chet Atkins' "Walk, Don't Run", and their virtuoso surf-guitar sound is instantly recognizable on such hits as "Honky Tonk", "Pipeline", and most famously, the theme song from "Hawaii Five-O".



    The Ventures are still going strong, and are especially popular in japan, where they outsold the Beatles 2 to 1. Dig their crazy sound today!
