Front Range, dude...
Speaking of rock legends, Dick Dale, King of the Surf guitar, has cancer. I checked his web site to see about upcoming shows, to find nothing scheduled. I emailed them, and got a response back FROM HIM (How cool is that?) that he is sick, and tours are on hold for now. His 16 or 17 y/o kid has been touring with him, and he wails too. Not like that snotty Van Halen kid, who is just along for the ride...:busted:

Anyway, best wishes to DD for a quick recovery and return to the stage!

Man what a bummer. I've seen him several times here in Santa Barbara and every time it was a hell of a show.

Well wishes to the King of the Surf Guitar
