Stevie Ray Vaughan and Dick Dale Play "Pipeline," a Video That's Got It All

Stevie Ray Vaughan and Dick Dale Play

The video below, a clip of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Dick Dale performing "Pipeline," one of the most famous surf-guitar instrumentals of all time, has got it all.

You've got the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan, a righty; you've got the under-appreciated Dick Dale, a lefty; you've got Dick Dale's bizarre hair; you've got Annette Funicello; you've got some lovely Fender Stratocasters.

You've got Gilligan and the Skipper from Gilligan's Island. There's Pee-wee Herman, not to mention several Eighties women in bikinis, a few Wayfarers, Frankie Avalon and more.

The clip is, of course, from a 1987 comedy called Back to the Beach. For more about this non-classic film, head here. Enjoy!
