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: http://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!
