Music Deaths: Nokie Edwards of the Ventures


These obits come from the Oldies Music News site.

NOKIE EDWARDS, 82

Died March 12, 2018

Founding member and guitarist (original bass).  Ventures formed in 1958 and had eight Top 40 hits between 1960 and 1969, including "Walk Don't Run" (#2-1960) and (#8-1964) with a different version.  "Hawaii-Five-0"  (#4-1969) and "Perfidia" (#15-1960)

That "Hawaii-Five-0" could almost get me to kill myself on a surfboard if I could ever get up on one.
