Sorry to hear the news about the passing of the great, great, great Dick Dale yesterday.  He had a huge influence on the Beach Boys and all of rock music.  Maybe now he'll get his much deserved entry into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame....

Thx for honoring Dick Dale. What I didn't know about him was that he was of Lebanese/Syrian ancestry, and that "Misirlou" was from that heritage. When I thought about it in that light, it made sense .

Quite the article in yesterday's Washington Post.  Dick's life-long battle with cancer kept him touring his whole life...just to pay his medical bills...to stay alive.

This is just so sad and wrong on so many levels. It's hard to understand how other affluent musicians didn't get together and help this man....one of their own.

What a go he had to go through  - wow.  Maybe people just didn't know about what he went through.  Another that I missed seeing.

Unique style and the bass strings on the bottom - reversed.  That Fender reverb. Still had the playing vibrancy. Moe sad news.
