Here is a multiple shot view of a drumstick used during Dick Dale's May 26, 2004 Birchmere, Alexandria, Virginia performance.  Amazingly, Dick was borrowing this drumstick from then drummer great Dusty Watson to do his guitar percussion segment, it slipped out of his hand and literally landed in front of me (I had a front row seat).  Later, Dusty and bass player Sam Bolle (who also do duty for well regarded California surf band Slacktone) signed it.  I got Dick and son Jimmy's signatures at the June 3, 2004 First World Guitar Congress Dick Dale Fender Stratocaster 1960 Beast (11 x 15 inch poster)
