Steve Pezman’s thoughts about Surf Music at Surfer’s Journal.
I know what he is saying. But I also think it’s too black and white. There’s richer Surf Music and even some bonafide Surf/Jazz hybrids.
Oh no – just reading about the passing of former Challengers bassist Randy Nauert. This is depressing, especially learning about his mis-fortune over the last months.
P.F. Sloan – half of legendary surf music vocal duo The Fantastic Baggys and prolific songwriter.
Thank you for your music.
