Okay, I need to move to Spain.

Or at least, I need to visit Spain. I’ve never been. But if this is the kind of shit they make all the time, I’m in.

I know this was from an event two years ago, but the production values are good, and the concept is fucking amazing. Seriously, having Link Wray, Bo Diddley, and Dick Dale at a table together and getting to chill out with them would be my idea of heaven.* Especially if Little Richard and Bowie come along. And Nik Turner plays sax.

Wait, holy shit… I actually met Dick Dale, thanks to being friends with Isaac Rother & the Phantoms. And I interviewed one of the Wraymen back in the day on dublab. And I actually have gotten to see ALL THREE of these guys play live at some point in my life. I guess being an old fucker has its rewards?

This is apropos of nothing, but I just love it when folks like this combine forces. So here’s a video of Dick Dale and the “little” Stevie Wonder, together, in the movie Muscle Beach Party.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Upon further reflection, I don’t think Dick Dale has much of a shot at getting into heaven.
