Stevie Ray Vaughan and Dick Dale Play "Pipeline" — a Video That's Got It All
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.
I mean, 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 high-quality Eighties women in bikinis, a few Wayfarers, Frankie Avalon and more.
The clip is, of course, taken from a 1987 comedy called Back to the Beach. For more about this non-classic film, head here.
