DICK DALE

 

 

 


THE KING OF THE SURF GUITAR!

 

Dick Dale (born Richard Anthony Monsour on May 4, 1937) is an American surf rock guitarist, known as The King of the Surf Guitar. He pioneered the surf music style, drawing on Eastern musical scales and experimenting with reverberation. He worked closely with Fender to produce custom made amplifiers, including the first-ever 100-watt guitar amplifier. He pushed the limits of electric amplification technology, helping to develop new equipment that was capable of producing distorted, "thick, clearly defined tones" at "previously undreamed-of volumes." The "breakneck speed of his single-note staccato picking technique" as well as his showmanship with the guitar is considered a precursor to heavy metal music, influencing guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen

 

 

Dick Dale “Guitar Legend” Writeup

Dick Dale, an avid surfer, was born in Boston Massachusetts in 1937, moved to California 1954 with his parents and great expectations for a bright future.  Dick is Polish/Lebanese. Polish is the mother’s side and Lebanese father's side.


As a kid he had taught himself to play the drums listening to Gene Krupa.  Dale bought his first ukulele, being left handed and drumming to the beat of Gene Krupa he began strumming left-handed upside down and backwards to a Gene Krupa beat.

Dale also loved the genius and playing of Les Paul and the vocals of Mary Ford.
Dale also became excited watching his uncle playing the legendary song Misirlou on an Oud instrument. Dale then learned to play Misirlou on his guitar.

He pioneered an entire genre of American music with his unique style of staccato picking and reverb-drenched sound, which earned him the title as “King of the Surf Guitar” by his surfer buddies.

“Dick Dale and the Del-Tones” re-opened the Famed Rendezvous Ballroom in Balboa, California, and became the star attraction playing nightly to thousands of screaming teenagers.


Dick is the Pioneer of it all including the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean and
Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly, The Kingston Trio and The Ventures, who opened for Dick in the late 1950s. Dick taught Jimmy Hendrix how to play many slides etc. in the beginning before Jimmy got into the drug scene, Dick said.

Dick Dale served as co-designer to Leo Fender, and helped create and build the super-powered electronics and equipment that would revolutionize musical instruments and the live and recorded sounds in the 50’s & 60’s.

Over a vast career of 50 years he has received an extensive number of Lifetime awards, and was nominated for a Grammy for the music in “Back To The Beach”.

He’s been inducted into the Surfing Hall of Fame in San Diego, Hollywood Rock of Fame, White House Congressional Hall of Records, and First Presidential Historical Society as a Lifetime Member, and was voted by over 100,000 members of his peers into Nashville’s Musicians Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Museum.


Dale has been featured as Huntington Beach’s Grand Marshal, featured at the yearly NAMM Convention, in countless movies, television, commercials, magazines, newspapers, grand openings and voted the number 1 top concert out of 500 concerts and bands in Madrid Spain.
 

Dick received the ATFL Gala Award in Washington DC by the US Ambassador Antoine Chedid on March 30th, 2014, and also is about to receive two triple platinums for both Misirlou-Pulp Fiction and Pump it black eyed peas.

Dick developed the nickname Showman by Leo Fender as he named his Amp the Showman Amplifier. Leo Fender felt Dick was like a son in those days.
Mrs. Fender came to a show to See Dick Dale and Lana Dale to say hello, and it was an honor for both Dick and Lana. Mrs. Dale said Mrs. Fender was a Special person with a Kind Heart and Soul.

To mention all of Dale’s accomplishments in a short bio would be a Titanic effort. But the Title, “Dick Dale King of the Surf Guitar,” will be forever be known as the man behind the epic instrumental “Misirlou” from Pulp Fiction and most recently with The Black Eyed Peas Platinum Cd “Pump It”.


Dick Dale is still playing strong as ever and going out on tours with his own band and his prodigy son Jimmy Dale, promoting their latest creations the Dick Dale Signature Fender Malibu Acoustic Electric guitar.

Dick has been touring with his beautiful wife Lana, whom he says is the
"...love of my entire life, as i haven't ever been in love before, nor wanted to marry before. I went through two horrible hilacious divorces. One tried to have me killed and took everything there was to take and that was my first wife, and the second was a drug addict with a boyfriend who stole money from me out of my safe, plus more, and again there was no love nor desire to marry to begin with, as that is a long story in itself in which i don't even want to get into. I don't like talking about either, as it's not worth talking about. I live for my love of life and wife/soulmate Lana, and I couldn't live without her! She is my Angel from Heaven all the way, and has been for 20 plus years. I just wish i would have met her in the early days. I wouldn't be alive if it weren't for her, as she saved my Life
three times.


Dick and Lana have traveled for years doing tours, as they are Johnny Appleseeds, spreading their Love for The DD Music Lovers all over the World. Each year they tour three times to each destination, and do Festivals and Casinos and Fairs in between. They do a Southern Tour first, then a North Eastern Tour and then a two-week tour usually to Washington State and back,  called the California Tour. Lana runs the business and creates all Dick Dale merch as well. Lana Dale answers 2000 emails a week religiously, and dedicates her entire life to her husband, and keeping him alive with all of his 8 Major Medical issues such as a stoma bag which they both deal with all day long each day, Diabetes with Insulin, for which Lana gives Dick a penicillin shot each day at 5PM sharp, major Prostate and Bladder issues, UTI's, which develop continuously, issues with his Rectum, as it was redirected by colon which is now in front for the stoma bag. DD has Renal Failure as well plus.

Lana and Dick are a True Love Story, and do it all together. I might say it is rare in the Music Business to see such a devoted couple!

Looming over the 10 Fwy and the Dodger Stadium, Dick can be seen on a full size Dodgertown Billboard, featuring a picture of him with his guitar and the statement “This is my town”!
