I've been meaning to post this for a while. It's a signed publicity photo from the great Dick Dale, the King of the Surf Guitar. In 2001, when I was working for a different publication, I assigned a writer to interview Dick Dale. The writer went out to his place in the high desert of Southern California and asked Dale to sign this for me, which he did. The full PR photo includes Dale's phone number and address at the bottom, but I cropped it to protect his privacy. I guess I've been thinking about Dale because I'm working on an article about Stratocasters and other solid-body electric guitars. The article should be on CW later this week....
