Description

At the age of 78, Dick Dale still plays some of the fastest guitar human hands can muster. In an effort to mirror his thought process as he tamed aquatic tubes, the king of surf rock melded dripping reverb and Eastern music techniques. He pushed Leo Fender to make an absurdly powerful amp, and his blistering staccato finger work inspired Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen. His beyond iconic single, “Miserlou,” has since cemented itself in the American cultural hivemind, appearing everywhere from Pulp Fiction to the central sample of the Black Eyed Peas’ international pop hit, “Pump It.” (JF)
