Dick Dale, the famous guitarist from the ‘50s and ‘60s, passed away in Sunday March 17th morning, at the age of 81. His health was getting worse and je was suffering from several diseases, such as diabetes, kidney failure and rectal cancer. He was forced to tour to the end of his life to fund his medical expenses. “I can’t stop touring because I will die. Physically and literally, I will die,” he told the Pittsburgh City Paper in 2015. “Sure, I’d love to stay home and build ships in a bottle and spend time with my wife in Hawaii, but I have to perform to save my life.” Of course, Dale is famous worldwide for his “Misirlou”, which was released in 1962, but became a huge hit in the ‘90s thanks to Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction”, where it was featured.
