Dale kept pushing Leo for louder and louder amplifiers becasue he was filling huge halls up with people and wanted to reach the back. Man those were the days!
Dale was "licensed" by the authorities... Meanwhile "Rumble" by Link Wray was banned! Weird time... But yeah. If we had time travel, and were barred from changing the past, I'd probably go see Dick rock the Rendezvous Ballroom! More than any other great from the 60's or 70's. I've come close to buying his custom shop Strat more than once!
I only play technologically cutting edge instruments. Parker Flys and National Resonators
