Dick Dale, who turned a Middle Eastern folk tune into a thunderous, wave-crashing instrumental anthem for surfing and rock & roll has died at the age of 81. Crowded House frontman and new member of Fleetwood Mac, Neil Finn has announced he's quitting social media in the wake of the mass murder at two mosques in his native New Zealand that left fifty dead. One popular social media platform My Space has lost twelve years-worth of songs.
