Nokie was primarily known for his work with The Ventures, though he a did much on the side. Great guitarist.

Thanks for posting this news. It's amazing to consider how influential this guy was. His generation of players, really. It's difficult to imagine what it must have been like to play electric guitar when the "field" was wide open. I recall reading interviews with Nokie in which he seemed personable and down-to-earth. Definitely a giant amongst guitarists.
