Dick Dale ain't playing, bro.
When guitar god Dick Dale straps on his superpowered Fender Strat, he's not fucking playing. Strings will snap. Ears will bleed. Speakers will explode.

And last night at the Vagabond, the 74-year-old axe master -- also known as the King of the Surf Guitar, the Godfather of Heavy Metal, the Grandaddy of Shred -- slashed through a scorching set of rock 'n' roll, country, surf, rockabilly, and metal. He even lit "Amazing Grace" ablaze. And lordy, it was a glorious flameout.

See the cut for ten photos from Dick Dale's destruction session at the Vagabond.
