“We wanted to find a slogan that represented the true spirit of the Internet,” said W3C spokesman Ian Jacobs. “The Internet allows for a free exchange of information and ideas.But even more often, it allows for flames retorts, and insult laden tirades at the slightest sign of any disagreement.

He burst into pop music in 1955 with a song named after himself and topped the R&B charts shortly afterward. A few years later, he built his own rectangular Gretsch, nicknamed “The Twang Machine,” which he would use to play thousands of concerts across decades of rousing performance. Along the way, he influenced everyone from Buddy Holly and Jimi Hendrix to The Stooges and The Sex Pistols, before passing away in Florida on Monday.
He was 79.

Like Chuck and Muddy, they started it all.
