Permalink First hand accounts from the first wave of surf music on SG101 (thread collection)

StickyNew Topic

Hey folks,
over the years a number of musicians from the 60s have shared their stories here on the forum, some even answered questions from other forum members in detail. For me these stories are one of the best things on SG101, but as the forum is basically growing by the minute, it often becomes difficult to find these stories, because you basically have to know that they are here beforehand.

So my idea was to collect the threads, in which first wave surf musicians talked in detail about their life in the 60s in a separate thread. Is started with everything I could remember from the top of my head, but I encourage anyone to add to this list. I bet there are stories in the depths of the forum, I have not read so far, and I sure would enjoy to do so.

Paul Johnson / Belairs / Good Guys / Challengers

Eddie & the Showmen / Eddie Bertrand (includes link to interview audio) (includes link to interview video)

Dave Myers & the Surftones

New Dimensions

Fender IV / Randy Holden

Centurions / Centurians

This is awesome! Thanks, Simon!


Gasp! I had no idea. Now I'm so excited about all the reading coming up. Thanks a million for doing this!

I just noticed that I had missed a second Randy Holden interview, which is now added to the list in the first post of this thread.
