Dick Dale Catch-Up

After Monday's triple shot of espresso, it seemed time to see what's up lately with Dick Dale.  No really new news, but there have been a couple of articles about him, his health problems, and his sheer damn determination to keep playing:
Pittsburgh City Paper
Billboard mag
An upbeat article from 2009

And of course, the man's web site, where we see that his 62' yacht is for sale.  Also see that I didn't make it to his April show at the Howlin' Wolf, and that I'd better pull out the stops to make it to see him the next time he's through the area.

Look on Dale's web site for tour dates.  Even if surf rock is not your cup of tea, you don't want to miss him if he's playing nearby.  He is the original, real deal.
