Happy Birthday to a North Carolina Rock and Roll legend!

Born in Dunn, NC on this day in 1929, Fred Lincoln "Link" Wray would go on to change the way the world heard the guitar. Popularizing the power-chord and distorted guitar, Neil Young, Iggy Pop, and Jimmy Page all credit Link Wray as a musical hero.
