Mel Taylor left in and was replaced by drummer Joe Barile to pursue a solo career when the Ventures became a nostalgia act. His intentions were to concentrate on new material and the progressive side of music.
He returned in and stayed with the Ventures until his death from cancer in When Mel Taylor got sick he was replaced by his son, Leon Taylor.
Later years[ edit ] Their commercial fortunes in the US declined sharply in the early s due to changing musical trends. The Ventures recorded their own version and continue occasionally to perform the song. Their career again rejuvenated by Quentin Tarantino 's use of the Lively Ones ' version of Nokie Edwards ' "Surf Rider" and several other classic surf songs in the soundtrack of the hit movie Pulp Fiction.
The Ventures became one of the most popular groups worldwide thanks in large part to their instrumental approach—there were no language barriers to overcome. The Ventures are still the most popular American rock group in Japan, the world's second largest record market.
One oft-quoted statistic is that the Ventures outsold the Beatles 2-to-1 in Japan. According to a January Billboard Magazine article, the Ventures had five of 's top 10 singles in Japan. In attendance were original members Don Wilson and Nokie Edwards , late s member John Durrill, current guitarist Bob Spalding, and current drummer Leon Taylor who, along with Mel Taylor's widow, Fiona, accepted on behalf of the Ventures' late drummer.

Then in early , California guitar manufacturer Mosrite re-branded their uniquely styled, futuristic-looking Mark 1 electric guitar model for the Ventures by applying decals that stated "The Ventures Model" on the headstock.
The band adopted these guitars which included a bass model and first used them on The Ventures in Space , one of their most influential albums because of the unique, unworldly guitar sounds it contained.
From through , a statement on their album covers announced that the Ventures used Mosrite guitars "exclusively" the Ventures and designer Semie Moseley were partners in the distribution of these instruments. After the expiration of their contract with Moseley, the Ventures returned to playing mainly Fender guitars. Only rarely have they used Mosrite guitars since that contract ended.
In the mids, Fender issued a limited edition Ventures Signature Series of guitars consisting of a Jazzmaster , a Stratocaster , and a Fender Jazz Bass , all with specifications determined by the band. The Wilson Brothers guitar, in particular, is closely modeled physically on the original Mosrite design. Legacy[ edit ] The Ventures enjoyed their greatest popularity and success in the US and Japan in the s, but they continue to perform and record. With over million albums sold worldwide, the group remains the best selling instrumental rock group of all time.
Thirty-eight Ventures albums including a seasonal Christmas album charted in the US, and six of fourteen chart singles made it into the Top 40 , with three making it into the Top Of their 38 chart albums, 34 of them occurred in the s, and the Ventures rank as the 6th best pop album performer for that decade, according to " Joel Whitburn 's Top Pop Albums".

Four LPs were released in this series, the first of which reached the Billboard Top Album Chart—an achievement previously unheard of for an instructional LP. In a novelty achievement, the Ventures were the first act to place two different versions of the same song in the Top 10, those being "Walk, Don't Run" 2 and "Walk, Don't Run '64" 8.
