    Dick Dale Dies

    Dick Dale, universally hailed as the king of the 1960s surf guitar sound that heavily influenced the development of rock 'n' roll guitar — and of rock 'n' roll guitars themselves — has died at age 81. He had recently been in treatment for cancer, from which he had twice previously recovered.


    Dale's death was reported by The Guardian and confirmed on Facebook by Dusty Watson, his former longtime drummer. No cause of death was immediately reported.


    Dale — who played his guitars left-handed and upside down, with the bass strings on the bottom — added Middle Eastern and Mexican strains to the melodic patterns of 1950s instrumental rock. Then he and his band, the Del-Tones, cranked up the reverb and speeded it all up to rocket pace, creating a loud, fierce sonic attack famous for overpowering amplifiers, which would, on occasion, literally explode or catch fire on stage.

    He was the fuckin man, not only was his music great to groove to but his influence can be heard in my favorite skate rock bands of all time. Can't tell you how many times we'd be skating with this cats music on a ghetto blaster

    Same here. One of my brothers has a large collection of old Rinx records, which were the organ songs formerly played at roller rinks. One of them is Miserlou, which is one of my favorite songs of all time. Some articles credit Dick Dale with having written it, but he didn't. Nobody knows who did, but it popped up sometime in the 1920's. Below is one of my favorite arrangements of the same song done by Martin Denny.
