Here's a tale, from the year he passed as well:

For real: @signifyingwolf & I opened for @Link_Wray in Paris 2005.
Rumor was he’d had trouble with the cops & might not make the show.
He arrived radiant, right before set time, gave me a fist bump on the way to the stage, & 1 minute into “Rumble” threw his guitar into the crowd.

Link Wray stood with both fists above his head watching his unmanned guitar howl feedback and ride over the churning crowd while the hired band vamped to its screams until it was thrown back into his hands, and Rock’s King ripped the last run of “Rumble” and left the building. 👑
