Ventures Cofounder Loses Cancer Battle

Ventures Cofounder Loses Cancer Battle was a top story from June and here it is again as we look back at the biggest stories from 2009 so far: (PR) Bob Bogle, who co-founded the best selling rock instrumental band in music history the Ventures after meeting Don Wilson while trying to buy a used car from a dealership owned by his father in 1958, passed away on Sunday at the age of 75 after long battle with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Although he hasn't played live with the band in four years, he remained active in recording and producing. Bogle lived long enough to see the band inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March, 2008 and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the group's founding in April of this year.

Bogle became ill over the weekend and was taken to a hospital, where he died, according to Wilson, who was his friend and musical collaborator for more than 50 years. - more on this story
