2005: Rock 'n' roll singer-songwriter and guitarist Fred Lincoln "Link" Wray Jr., whose 1958 instrumental hit "Rumble" essentially introduced the power chord to rock music, dies of heart failure at age 76 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Wray has been credited with making both punk and hard rock possible and was named by Rolling Stone as the 45th best guitarist in history.
