Evolution of Surf Guitar Culture

(photo:www.musiciansfriend.com)

Andrew Dansby of the Houston Chronicle just posted a great article at www.chron.com about surf legend Davie Allan who's appearing at Houston's Continental Club this Saturday.

Davie Allan shares royalty status with Dick Dale and Link Wray in this wavey genre.

Beyond just a bio on Davie Allan, the article provides an excellent past-present overview of Surf Guitar culture, with interesting factoids about Fender's marketing during the initial rush of Surf. Various models from the Strat to the Jazzmaster to the Jaguar, and the legends associated with them, are put into perspective. Lots of interesting quotes are also included.

Even if you're not particularly into Surf guitar, the insight is still well worth the read. Kudos to Dansby at the Chronicle for his well written, musician-worthy piece!
