He had an amazing career.
I play their greatest hits album from time to time, which I have on CD. I remember trying to pick out 'Walk, Don't Run" on my dad's acoustic guitar. Trying and failing, because the whammy bar and reverb was a big part of their sound.
They are pictured on that album cover with Fender guitars, but at the height of their popularity, they were playing Mosrite guitars mostly.

If I recall, Mosrite agreed to supply them with guitars, sort of an early corporate sponsorship.

Sad to see Nokie pass. I have half a dozen Ventures LPs, which I enjoy very much.
