Wow...this one stings.

Not sure if we still have an obit thread anymore, but it deserves its own thread, no?

RIP Peter, I already mentioned that when I was a kid the Monkees were big, and I was a 10 YO kid when they started, they have a TV series, a comic magazine and records, I had some of my first Picture sleeves singles by them. I felt I was groovy LOL one day my older brother and some of his friends when to my house and they said something like “Come on, do you have records of the Monkees? they are bull shit” then I started to listen to my brothers albums and discovered the difference, then I started to listen psychedelic music, blues and classic rock instead of that bubble gum and sunshine commercial pop.

Again RIP Peter

Some facts: The Jimi Hendrix Experience was their opening act in a tour and they interacted with the Beatles and Frank Zappa

Actually, the producers rejected Stills because of his teeth or something like that. When he got rejected, he let Peter know about it.

Jeez, I haven't heard this since I was 12 years old and AM radio was about to be defeated by FM.  It's so manufactured that it calls 3/4 of The California Sound into question, including Love, Buffalo Springfield, and CSNY.  2:29 of this kind of work invites its own backlash.  Sadly, I love it and miss it.

Dick Dale, king of surf guitar, dead at 81


by Jared Leone, Cox Media Group National Content Desk, NCD



...



Dick Dale, whose airy guitar licks became the foundation of the surf rock genre, died Saturday at 81.

Sam Bolle, a bassist who performed with Dale, confirmed his death to The Guardian. Dale suffered from various health issues. His cause of death was not released.
Dale’s 1962 hit "Miserlou" re-found fame decades later as the opening credit song for the movie "Pulp Fiction."






His 1961 single "Let’s Go Trippin’" is considered the first instrumental surf rock song.
Dale’s distinct playing style led to his unique sound. It also led to his work helping Leo Fender design the Stratocaster guitar.
"(Fender) used to say: ‘When it can withstand the barrage of punishment from Dick Dale, then it is fit for the human consumption.’ So I blew up over 50 amplifiers. And that’s why they call me the Father of Heavy Metal," Dale told the Miami New Times in 2011.

Dale stopped performing in the mid 1970s but was playing again by the 1980s and continued touring into the 21st century. Although he had health insurance, it did not provide coverage to pay to replenish supplies to keep his stoma infection-free, BIllboard reported in 2015. Dale suffered from Diabetes and had post-cancer treatments.
"I can’t stop touring because I will die. Physically and literally, I will die," Dale said.
