Testimonials - Dick Dale (Professional Musician)


Dick Dale is the pioneer of surf rock and one of the most influential guitarists of the early 1960's and has stood the test of time with popularity still reigning through to today.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dick_Dale

Dick Dale invented surf music, and that would be enough to guarantee his place in the history of music, but he also coined an influential guitar style, a style that wed the frantic pace of folk-rock, the sound effects of psychedelia and the fury of punk-rock years before any of these had been invented.

When the Middle Eastern sounding Miserlou, his 1962 hit, was used as the soundtrack for "Pulp Fiction", Dale was rediscovered and began to record again. Tribal Thunder (Hightone, 1993) contains a spectacular number, Nitro. A punk spirit propels the ferocious performances in Unknown Territory (Hightone, 1995), from Ghostriders In The Sky to California Sun. Calling Up Spirits (Beggars Banquet, 1996) includes a couple of old songs, Mr Peppermint Man and The Wedge.

Les Paul said to a dd fan, when asked who his favorite guitar player was? the fan said dick dale.. then Les said, yes, i played with dick dale and he is a great player and a great person, but i played with his son jimmy dale and he is some one to look out for, a real player. ~ Dick Dale

Letter From Dick Dale:

The CalDigit is a creature that hooks a ride with jimmy and me whenever and wherever we go on tour with our MacBook Pro laptops....

It is blazingly fast in transfers.... just plug it in.

Our G5 at home cruises like mad max when we do the hookup thing with the ''digit'', (thats what i call it)

Easy to use, feels and looks pro, the digit performs without a hitch....

There are many ways to use it to suit your needs.

The Frosting on the Cake is, you can call the company anytime and they jump through hoops with a smile to take care of you.
