Bob Bogle (Ventures), RIP


Recommended Posts

Bob Bogle, one of the original Ventures (played lead on their original 1960 version of "Walk Don't Run", later switched to bass, flip-flopping with then-bassist Nokie Edwards, who took over on lead) passed away of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma this past Sunday in Vancouver, WA., age 75. He played with the band from their inception in '58 to 2004, and at least lived long enough to see them inducted into the R&R Hall of Fame, although he was unable to attend the induction ceremony. RIP...........

"Very few of us even know who the Venture are/were, John."

Ted - Sad but true....although I do remember various posters here debating the merits of the band when they were announced as finalists for the R&R Hall of Fame a couple of years ago.

(And if we had more Japanese members, they'd certainly know who The Ventures are! What's left of the band still tours over there to this day.)
