RIP Dick Dale, ‘King of the Surf Guitar’ Passes Away at 81
March 17, 2019

By DONNA BALANCIA

Dick Dale, known as “King of The Surf Guitar,” has passed away, sources said on Sunday.

Dale, who had been quietly suffering health issues for many years, was considered a leader in the surf guitar music genre. Dale was 81.

Born Richard Anthony Monsour, his famous songs, like “Miserlou,” and many others have become part of the American music fabric.

Dale created the sound of the surf guitar by working with Middle Eastern music scales applied to a driving beat.

Dale performed up until the very end and once told CaliforniaRocker.com that performing was what was keeping him alive. Sources said he passed around 4 a.m. on Sunday.

Among those who paid tribute to Dale was former drummer Dusty Watson of The Sonics.

“The legend and king of surf guitar has passed,” Watson wrote on his Facebook page. “Condolences to family and friends and all those who were touched by your undeniable presence. Rest In Peace friend.”

Dale told California Rocker in an interview that he would never quit playing.

“They say ‘Why don’t you retire, Dick?’” Dale said. “Well, there are two reasons I don’t retire: Playing music keeps me alive, and my music helps others.”

Calls were in to wife, Lana Dale. More to come.
