Guitar Legend: Dick Dale/Texas Plant

When: Fri., Aug. 19, 8:30 p.m. 2016

From rock, to punk rock, to heavy metal, all roads lead back to Dick Dale. Known for his lightning-quick picking, the undisputed “King of the Surf Guitar” has remained an active musician, touring and recording since Eisenhower was president. Dale is a living legend for more than his genre pioneering music. He has maintained a grueling non-stop touring schedule; Cleveland is a frequent destination. For Dale, touring is a necessity—the costs of a series of medical issues from diabetes to cancer have forced the living legend to continue working long after others pass the torch and hang up their robes. Not many, musician or not, could do the same, let alone take to the road to perform nightly. (Kelly)
