The Ventures are profoundly sad to hear of the death of Bobby Vee, 1960s legendary singer. As many people know, Liberty Records released an album in the 1960s featuring both The Ventures and Bobby Vee, entitled (appropriately enough!) Bobby Vee meets The Ventures. In fact, at the Ventures Fan Jam a few weeks ago, some of us were discussing that album and, while it was dismissed by many at the time, it still holds up today and definitely deserves a listen again - or for the first time for anyone who has not heard it before. Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife and family at this very sad time.
