All-American quartet the Ventures rival Britain's Shadows as the world's leading instrumental group. They are certainly the most prolific, with over 100 albums to their credit since coming together in 1959. They were formed in Seattle by Nokie Edwards (lead guitar), Bob Bogle (bass), Don Wilson (rhythm guitar) and Howie Johnson (drums), and went on to carve their own distinctive niche in music history. In Don Wilson's modest words, he and his pals 'bought a couple of guitars from a pawn shop and some chord books and learned to play them.' John Fogerty, who introduced the ban at their induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008, said 'Walk Don't Run' had 'kicked open a whole movement in rock'n'roll. The sound of it… and the audacity of it empowered guitarists everywhere.' Listen to this collection of instrumental classics and, guitarist or not, you'll surely agree.
