Duane Eddy – sad news

Duane Eddy – sad news
Posted on May 7, 2024 .

The Ventures’ organization mourns the passing of the great guitar legend, Duane Eddy.  Don and Bob often spoke of Duane as one of the players who influenced their music in the early days.  It was a privilege and a pleasure to have known him and an equal privilege when Duane came to California in 1997 to guest on The Ventures’ album that was released in Japan that year titled “Wild Again II”.  The album was also released in the US on Crescendo Records, under the title “New Depths”.  Our thoughts are with Duane’s family and friends at this very sad time.  The music world has lost another icon from the 1960s.  May he play on in rock and roll heaven!
