If you loved the haunting guitarwork from the movie Pulp Fiction, you'll love to hear this rare interview with Miserlou maestro heavy surf god guitar slinger Dick Dale by KRUU Lo-Fi host Scott Puffer.
The man who blew out 50 of Leo Fender's amps, a true American original, check out what he has to say about just about anything.
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.
Dick Dale recently performed at the Picador in Iowa City.
