Pulp Non-Fiction

Let’s talk about Dick Dale. How can you not respect a cranky old bastard that has lived through rectal cancer. Twice. 72 years old and still putting together a rocking act. The guy has been innovative in both his style of play and his equipment. He’s thought to be the first American rock guitarist to incorporate non-Western scales into his music (think Misirlou) and was the first guitarist to employ a 100 watt amplifier. When this guy kicks it, there will be no successor to the title “king of the surf guitar”; there is no other.

Here he is at a much younger 70 years old, playing with G. E. Smith (a guy that seems to get all the best gigs).
