Kalifornijski muzičar Dick Dale, začetnik stila zvanog “surf gitara” kojim je uvelike utjecao na grupu “Beach Boys”, Jimija Hendrixa i heavy metal, umro je u 82. godini, objavili su njegovi saradnici.

Dale se posebno  proslavio izvedbom “Misirlou” krajem 50-ih godina, a koja je 90-ih doživjela renesansu kada je korištena kao uvodna tema u kultnom filmu “Pakleni šund” Quentina Tarantina.

RIP Dick Dale – Father of the Surf Guitar. We all owe you. Rock on. ??? Look how his guitar is strung ! He’s left handed, but plays essentially a right handed guitar – except for the controls and ‘horns’. So his heavy bass-end strings are at the lower edge of the fretboard. This means his fingers could never fall in the same shapes as the rest of us. Maybe this led him to use those low notes more often and more forcefully than everyone around him. But his highly distinctive sound comes from his very fast up-and down action in the picking hand (sometimes confusingly referred to as ‘tremolo’, in reference to the similar-sounding traditional Flamenco Spanish guitar technique, which is actually done in a very different way, with multiple fingernails). And a lot of echo effect. And thick strings. And a lot of energy !!! Check out his early hit ‘Miserlou’. Wild !!! I wish I’d met him. But truly we all benefit from his trailblazing. Bri

Daleovu smrt potvrdio je jedan od njegovih bivših bubnjara Dusty Watson. Uzrok smrti nije objavljen, ali  Dale je sve do kraja, unatoč slabom zdravlju, nastavio nastupati na turneji. U jednom od svojih intervjua, 2012. godine, Dale je govorio o o borbi sa kancerom i dijabetesom i razlogu zbog kog je nastavio da nastupa protiveći se savjetima ljekara.

– Kažu da ne bi trebalo da nastupam – rekao je, dodajući da njegovi lijekovi za mjesec dana koštaju više od tri hiljade dolara.

Njegovo pravo ime bilo je Richard Anthony Monsour, a rođen je 1937. godine u Bostonu. U Kaliforniju se preselio kao tinejdžer.
