Bob and Don sought to change their vocation and created what became the number one instrumental group in the history of Rock and Roll. I am a musician and I have a complete collection of The Ventures albums. My favorite is still their first album (Walk Don't Run). Bob's unique sound is still with me as is his version of "Caravan." His passing is a loss and I extend my condolences to his family. Rest in peace Bob, your influence on music will continue.

Like so many, I learned to play guitar from listening to and playing along with The Ventures' albums. I still listen to these albums, although I have replaced them with cds. Personally I prefer the earlier work of The Ventures largely because of Bob's unique style with the wammy bar. I'm in my 60s and when I want to relax I put on the Ventures and play along with the records. Bob thank you for the music. You and Don really made a difference in this world.

This message is a little offkey but still musically inspired & loved in only a way someone who loves guitar & the impacts some of our friends, teachers, prodigies have made on our lives-- even some 50 YEARS later-- can appreciate..
I would like to say that my daddy knows Paul Kirby. And remembers the cool story P.K. relayed (with photos) about the Venturers, you see, cause my daddy was around, too ;)
My daddy (Bob Hunt) told me an awesome story TODAY about how he knew a guy named Paul Kirby and how great a guitar player he was (Called em a Prodigy) and the drummer they played with, and about how the Venturers came to see Paul bedside around the time of the surgery he had.
It inclined me to do a Google search, and wouldn't ya know it, this was the very first result that popped up with "Paul Kirby Nevada Venturers" ?? ;)
If PAUL KIRBY ever gets a chance to see this message, my daddy misses playing guitar with you and he still plays today. I heard a wonderful story about you today, some of your friends and the drives my daddy would make to visit you acrosss the desert.
If you ever see this message, please email me for him! Menstra@msn.com =)

Most people wrote that The Ventures inspired them to learn guitar. For me, it was my learning guitar that introduced me to The Ventures. My guitar teacher taught me how to play Walk Don't Run, Pipeline and Hawaii Five O. I used to bug my Mom for juke box money to play Hawaii Five-O every time we went out to eat. Finally, she bought me every Ventures album we could find at the local department store. I still play Walk Don't Run every once in a while. RIP Bob Bogle
