Jack Rose cited Wray as an influence,[1 9] as did Iggy Pop[20] and Neil Young.[21] Jimmy Page says that Link Wray had a "real rebel attitude" and credits him in It Might Get Loud as a major influence in his early career. According to Rolling Stone, Pete Townshend of The Who once said, "If it hadn't been for Link Wray and 'Rumble,' I never would have picked up a guitar." "The only people I ever really looked up to were Link Wray and Iggy Pop," said Mark E. Smith of The Fall. "Guys like…Link Wray…are very special to me."

YOUR LIKE THE REST OF THE PHONEY JOURNALISTS. WHEN THERE NO STORIES AROUND YOU'LL DREAM UP SOMETHING ABOUT LINK WRAY AND PUT HIM IN OR GET HIM NOMINATED. JUST TO FILL THE TICKET UP LIKE YOU DID AT THE 2013 HOF WITH GENE VINCENTS BLUECAPS AND JAMES BROWN. BUT IF HE DOES GET IN "SCOBIE AKA LINKWRAY BAND Laurel, md. WOULD LIKE TO DO A TRIBUTE AT THE INDUCTION ,RIGHT? YOU READ IT EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T POST IT. RIGHT?
