    d*ck Dale, known as “King of The Surf Guitar,” has passed away, sources said on Sunday.

    Dale, who had been quietly suffering health issues for many years, was considered a leader in the surf guitar genre. Dale was 82.

    Born Richard Anthony Monsour, his famous songs, like “Miserlou,” and many others have become part of the American music fabric.

    Dale created the sound of the surf guitar by working with Middle Eastern music scales applied to a driving beat.

  • I was born in 1989 not 1899.

    Edit: Not to be disrespectful. RIP to Mr. Dale. Sounds like he was quite the influence.

  • Not particularly up on the genre, and popular music isn't really my thing, however, Pulp Fiction made Misirlou iconic. RIP.

    Iconic song. Too bad the Black Eyed Peas bastardized it.
