The Ventures is an awesome instrumental group formed by Don Wilson and Bob Bogle. They started in 1958 being masorny workers at the time.
The Ventures mostly pioneered in surf and rock genres. Also Indian and Arabic (among other) themes can be found in their music.
What else there is to say... they clearly changed the whole industry by their creative and inspiring touch
Have you heard Wipe Out by The Ventures? The drummer must have pretty friggin sore arms after that kinda insane whipping...
