The world's number one instrumental group had a worldwide hit in 1960 with "Walk-Don't Run." They hit high again with "Hawaii Five-0," continuing on a fifty-year career of recording and touring towards America's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Written in collaboration with band members and associates over a 9 year period, the heavily illustrated book contains data for over 50 of the band's sixties recording sessions.
Once I got started, I couldn't put it down. There are so many twists and turns through the decades while fads and fortunes propel the group from success to success, rising and falling with the trends of music and fate. This story provides ample proof of what happens to the roller coaster at the bottom. It rises up again!
There are many hidden stories within that tell of the times and people and make one aware of just how significant The Ventures are for all these years on their way to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
