Dick Dale, RIP

We lost a real legend this week, Dick Dale, and his medical story was tragic:

Dick Dale… invented surf music in the 1950’s. Not the ’60’s as is commonly believed. He was given the title “King of the Surf Guitar” by his fellow surfers with whom he surfed with from sun-up to sun-down. He met Leo Fender the guitar and amplifier Guru and Leo asked Dale to play his newly creation, the Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The minute Dale picked up the guitar, Leo Fender broke into uncontrolled laughter and disbelief, he was watching Dale play a right handed guitar upside down and backwards, Dale was playing a right handed guitar left handed and changing the chords in his head then transposing the chords to his hands to create a sound never heard before.

Here is Dick playing at the Fiesta Del Sol in Solana Beach in 2011:

Bruce Springsteen Murder Inc

This has been a tough week for the blog.

First, I played a music video on Monday to clear out my saved 100+ old-guy videos before I can get to wifey’s new music! Then I woke up the next day to realize that my introduction to the following blog post didn’t come off as I thought, so I changed it.

Then today I posted the old news about the Dream House raffle being suspect, and thankfully anon guided us to the recent UT story that noted that showed the Ronald McDonald people have taken over the raffle, and the house will be given away this year for the first time.

I bought three tickets!

Beer Drinkers

It’s probably obvious that the practice is undergoing changes, and Donna is participating more with the sales team. She thinks the Wednesday Rock Blogging should catch up with the times, to which I said, “Sure, I’m hip – what do you want to hear?”

She said, “Post Malone and J Cole”.

Yeah….no. Can we warm up to that honey? A very special ZZ moment:

The Penetrators

Did you miss the Penetrators at the Casbah on Monday? Here’s a video of them playing at SDSU’s Montezuma Hall when they opened for the Ramones in 1978, and a song from Monday’s set. Yes, Country Dick was the original drummer!
