Tuck: You occasionally notice such bands. Often it turns out that FB just won't admit they're on FB. Or that they haven't admitted they're a band yet.

Dick Dodd Passes Away at Age 68

Submitted by Brian on November 30, 2013.
Surf Scene News

Dick Dodd, former Mouseketeer, drummer for the Belairs, Eddie & The Showmen, and later the garage band The Standells ("Dirty Water"), has passed away at age 68. It was only recently announced that Dick had stage four cancer, and a GoFundeMe support page was created.

Today, his attorney, Peggi Collins wrote on the support page:

It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that Dickie lost his battle last night. He had contracted pneumonia and just wasn't strong enough to fight it. Please remember him in your prayers and consider adding to this fund which his family desperately needs to offset the great expense of his illness.

If you can afford it, please consider contributing to the fund to help Dick's family with their expenses.

In recent years Dick was active in the surf music scene, appearing and performing at various events, notably a benefit for guitarist Eddie Bertrand. Please join SurfGuitar101 in thanking Dick Dodd for his amazing contributions to surf music.
