The King Of Surf Guitar passed away at the age of 81.

Seems that he pretty much toured right until his death in order to keep up with his mounting medical bill from chronic health issues.

One of the guitar greats in my opinion!

Godspeed Dick Dale.

The man wasn't only just a legend but a man who truly appreciated his fans,we seen him twice,pictured here with my daughter in 2011 and 2012 seen him again and he honestly remembered Baby Girl and stopped playing for a second and asked how she been since last year and handed her his pick and continued to jam on.... heaven just got louder ....thank you Dick Dale..

He and his sound will be missed. I'm looking around in a couple of local used record/book stores in the area to see if any of his old albums are still around.

I first met Dick Dale back in 2009, and became a steady follower of his. Dick has inspired me to play guitar, and I have not looked back since then. I used to attend his concerts whenever I got the chance, and hung out with him backstage. One time in 2014, I met him down in Huntington Beach, CA and showed him my '65 Corvair Monza convertible. I'm absolutely torn over losing the King of the Surf Guitar. R.I.P. Dick Dale

Rest in peace, Dick. I had the pleasure and privilege of seeing him twice at the Belly Up in Solana Beach. The man is a master.  One of my daughters went to the second concert. Oddly enough, she couldn't get any of her friends to come along. Their profound loss.
