If anyone can shred, it's Dick Dale. The man's tremolo-picked surf guitar anthems have made him a veritable icon. However there was one question on our minds here at ARTISTdirect.com. What does Dick Listen to?
The ever-talkative guitarist had an answer of course, and he even opened up his iTunes to show us.
Dick explains, "When I start listening to stuff, I go on binges. It all depends on what I'm listening to. I can appreciate everything. I told my son Jimmy, 'Find the beauty in every kind of music because it took someone's sweat, blood, heart and soul to create that music.' You may not like that music but take a little time. When you listen to music, you can always still find and appreciate what the artist did to make it."
