I play with Ron in 'The Dentures", a surf band. We opened up for Dick Dale a bit ago. He was having problems with his Strat, and took it to Ron's the next day. Ron got him going on the Pittuba. Shoulda had a video.........

Ha ha ha. That is the best name for a surf band that I have ever heard! Fantastic take off on the Ventures.

BTW There is no one like Dick Dale. I heard that he had been having health issues not to long ago. Anyone have an update?

Dick's had colon cancer. He was looking much better this time around. I'll ask Ron. He hear's from him regularly.....
