and sound engineer. Without him there would be no Beatles, and maybe no rock and roll either.

How many artists of such stature from the 40s and 50s have their own websites and do podcasting?

Mosey on over and wish the old gentleman happy 91st.

You are SO right! He pioneered multi-track recording and raised the bar for guitarists of subsequent generations. He is revered by musicians and listeners, even after all these years.

I grew up listening to him and Mary Ford, "Vaya con Dios" was their signature song for me and my friends.

Thanks for sharing this, Corlyss!!!
