Yeah but seriously check out link wray. he is the best, he started that whole "dirty" guitar sound. And not to mention invented the power chord. And its very hard to find, but if you do you see what im tlaking about. If youve ever hear a crmaps song were lux does that weird yelling thing (in "i can't hardly stand it" he does it alot) you see that he totally ripped that of of link. link sounded that way because he had turbiculousis(sp) and his lungs were all fucked up. but its hard to find a song where he sings.

Link's "aint that lovin ya" he sings, it sound so much like lux, but this came out way before the cramps.
