Text Quotes
You know what the doctors call me? ‘The Cancer Warrior.’  (Dick Dale Quotes) The ultimate guitar players can play every scale in the book  (Dick Dale Quotes) Surf music is played through a Showman amp with a Stratocaster guitar  (Dick Dale Quotes) I became stereotyped  (Dick Dale Quotes) I make my guitar scream with pain or pleasure or sensuality. It makes people move their feet and shake their bodies. That’s what music does.  (Dick Dale Quotes) When I first played the guitar without plugging it into an amplifier, the people at Fender were blown away. They couldn’t believe the sound. I said, ‘See, gentlemen, the world is no longer flat.’  (Dick Dale Quotes) What we perceive things to be when they come out of our mouth is not what the listener perceives it to be. They think it differently. They’re not your blood. They’re not your mind. You get in an argument.  (Dick Dale Quotes) I don’t live with the ‘right’ people. I don’t want to. I don’t want to live with the rich in Beverly Hills or walk the streets of Hollywood. I want to go to K-mart and get good deals.  (Dick Dale Quotes) Music is an attitude. It’s a sensation to the average person, to the human being. And keep it simple, stupid. That’s always been my theory.  (Dick Dale Quotes) I’ll never die. I’ll just explode, right there before your eyes, onstage.  (Dick Dale Quotes) When my guitar was growling, playing surf beat, you could hear it; you could feel it  (Dick Dale Quotes) Hendrix was the bass player for Little Richard. We were both left-handed, but we would use a right-handed guitar held upside down and backwards. He developed my slides and my riffs. In fact he used to say, and this is documented, ‘I patterned my style after Dick Dale.’  (Dick Dale Quotes) I answer number one to myself, because I know myself. I answer to my fans, because they know me. My mother knows me and God knows me, and that’s where it’s at.  (Dick Dale Quotes) I don’t play pyrotechnic scales. I play about frustration, patience, anger. Music is an extension of my soul.  (Dick Dale Quotes) As a little kid I had a girlfriend, and her boyfriend used to beat me up, so then I used to sing these songs, and that’s what it’s all about. Country music is all about your heart and your people and things like that.  (Dick Dale Quotes) What I play now isn’t surf music. It’s too powerful. I used to go through paper bags; now I go through brick walls. I play hard.  (Dick Dale Quotes) I have all the rhythm in my left hand, and I use the rhythms that Gene Krupa did on his drums  (Dick Dale Quotes) I learned everything by ear and played all the different instruments. So then I was able to find a guitar. That was, like, in the seventh grade. And then I didn’t know how to put my fingers on all the different strings, so I had to figure out how to do it upside down and backwards, and I still play that way today.  (Dick Dale Quotes) Surf music is actually just the sound of the waves played on a guitar: that wet, splashy sound  (Dick Dale Quotes) Whatever you do, don’t take shortcuts. It’s great advice to take and live by.  (Dick Dale Quotes) That’s what my music does for me. It makes people happy. When I play, I thank the Lord I’ve never seen someone walk away from a Dick Dale dance not having a good time. That’s what it’s all about.  (Dick Dale Quotes) When I was 18 at the Santa Ana River Jetty is where I put my first board in the water that I ever got from Joe Quigg. I was just riding the whitewater in, and I was just in heaven.  (Dick Dale Quotes) I’ve never followed a list in my life, and that’s probably what has created so much nervous energy in my body.  (Dick Dale Quotes) Kids don’t see me as an oldies person when I go out on stage. They see me as an energy force.  (Dick Dale Quotes) There’s a saying. If you want someone to love you forever, buy a dog, feed it and keep it around.  (Dick Dale Quotes) Gene Krupa was my big hero, and I used to play on my mother’s flour cans and sugar cans with the kitchen knives, listening to the big bands on my dad’s records. Gene Krupa and Harry James.  (Dick Dale Quotes) As I’d go out learning to surf, I’d feel the power of waves coming over my body. It’s like you’re with God.  (Dick Dale Quotes) Music is nothing but a door opener to meet families and their children and the elderly  (Dick Dale Quotes) You shouldn’t even be writing this story if you haven’t heard me play live. You can’t write with the passion you receive until you see a Dick Dale concert  (Dick Dale Quotes) You can’t eat fish. It’s 6,000 parts DDT per million all over the world, not counting radiation  (Dick Dale Quotes)
