TACOMA, Wash.-- Bob Bogle, lead guitarist and co-founder of the rock band The Ventures, known for 1960s instrumental hits including "Walk, Don't Run," has died. He was 75.
I spent my teenage years in the surfing subculture of Southern California. "Walk, Don't Run" was an anthem along with songs by Jan & Dean and The Beach Boys. It's playing in my head right now.
Those were good times and the music was a big part of it. Thanks, Bob. Godspeed.
