Happy Birthday Dick Dale!
At the Surf Club (now demolished thanks to Hurricane Sandy)
Happy Birthday to legendary Dick Dale!
My husband and I make it a point to see him perform whenever he comes to New Jersey. For a few years he was struggling with cancer so he wasn’t touring, but last summer we saw him again. I posted about it on my Maryanne’s Jukebox page: https://maryannesjukebox.wordpress.com/tag/dick-dale/. There are pictures and some video footage, from The Surf Club that no longer exists thanks to Hurricane Sandy.
Here’s his best song ever, “Misirlou” from 1963
Here’s another goodie:
I think Dick is coming around again in August — I can’t wait!
