Don Wilson is the guitarist and the co-founder of “The Ventures”.
The Ventures was formed in 1958, Bob Bogle and Don Wilson formed the nucleus of the original music group, The Ventures. The duo was joined a few years later by Nokie Edwards to record “Walk, Don’t Run”. The song hit Billboard’s Singles Chart on July 18, 1960 and peaked at #2. The rest, as they say, is history. The band became one of the most popular and biggest selling acts of the 1960s, and was prolific during the 60’s in terms of touring and recording, particularly albums.
More than 50 years later – with record sales at 100 million plus – with 14 songs that hit the Singles Charts – with 38 LPs that hit the Album Charts (including their smash seasonal Christmas album) – with a lineup that remains solid – The Ventures style and sound is as pure and powerful as ever.
