Appears to be a rumor, but John Blair confirmed it on Facebook.

Both of those websites are bogus. Take a close look at each of them. Wait until somebody close to him says something.

Seems John Blair confirmed on facebook Sad Doubt he would confirm if he wasn't sure.

Cannot attest to reliability of the following online magazine but this was ust published:

I saw that as well. That makes me think it might be real.

Sadly, it’s true. Mutual friend Vinnie Orlando confirmed it with Lana this morning. Dick passed last night at 10:15. Rest In Peace.

It's a sad day for all of us.

Happy Sunsets!

Thank you, Dick. You gave us a gift that will last forever, and no one ever played harder or longer. Rest in Peace.

Sad news about Dick Dale. Some people you just take for granted they will always be around. His spirit and vision will be his gift to us.

Legend . . . this is sad, will be hard to get use to the idea of Dick Dale not being around.
Always was, and always will be 'The King of Surf Guitar'

'Surf Music Lasts Forever'

Thanks for all you gave Mr. Dale.

Sorry to hear - Thoughts for his family and friends

Now The King surfs the Universe ,,,,gonna miss him

NOOOOOO! Gasp! I fantasized about playing him my stuff, when it’s finally ready. Such a massive influence on me, I feel like I’m channeling him sometimes. This is huge. God damn.

The Guardian confirmed with his touring bassist. I don't think there's much doubt at this point. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/mar/17/dick-dale-dies-aged-81-misirlou-pulp-fiction
