The American Star-guitarist Dick Dale (1937-2019) died on Saturday at the age of 81 years. The Bassist Sam Bolle “The Guardian informed”. The native of Boston, Richard you was one of the most influential and expressive guitarists of his time and is regarded as a model for prominent colleagues such as Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970), Pete Townshend (73, The Who) Eddie Van Halen (64, Van Halen). In addition, Dale was one of the pioneers of the more instrumental Rock’n’Roll version of “surf music”.

Dick Dale founded in 1961, The Del-Tones; the Band until today. The Album “The Tigers Loose” (1986) earned him a Grammy nomination. Fans of Quentin Tarantino (55) are likely to know, especially Dales title “Misirlou” (1963), the American Director to use him in his cult film “Pulp Fiction” (1994) as the title tune – and who would not forget how Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) dance in the legendary scene with two fingers in front of the face.
