Everybody knows 'Hawaii Five-O' and the Ventures have made their mark on history. Their legacy continues thru the bands they influenced like Los Straitjackets. Thank you and RIP Don Wilson.

A sad loss. I've seen The Ventures live here 4 times, the last being about 4 years ago, maybe 5.

 With over 100 million records sold, the Ventures are the best-selling instrumental band of all time.

That says it all.
