Yes, Bing influenced Dean a great deal but if you relaly want to see where Dino got his influence from, watch the Mills Brothers perform. He idolized the lead singer (his name escapes me at the moment.) At any rate, yes Chet isn't so much referenced in the rock and roll realm but his contributions to music, all genres, and guitar players alike is the stuff of legend. One of his best known quotes about his playing was well most guitar players know 1 or 2 chords. I just happen to know 3 or 4.
