This made me feel warm all over and restored my faith in mankind. Check out the Ventures ROCKIN' the tune Caravan when they played Shindig in 1965. See it over at YouTube. This maybe the coolest thing on the internet.

Gawd, that's awesome. I saw the Ventures almost 30 years ago at the Troubador in L.A. The now sadly-departed Mel Taylor's drum solo, where he used his sticks to play Nokie Edward's bass, brought the house down.

There are a whole slew of great Ventures clips on YouTube.

Yeah, baaaaaby!

That was frickin' great. I think you can basically "surf-i-fy" just about any tune out there, which is pretty cool in my book.

Thanks for that.

I'm tryin' to stay at least marginally within the group's charter, but it's hard!...

That Bob Denver Ho Daddy clip has given me more nightmares than an extra-large anchovy pizza with jalapeno peppers.
