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.
