Met him about twenty years ago after loving his stuff since I was a surf-music obsessed sixth former...he was really polite and a really charismatic figure. Still one of the best gigs I've ever seen - he was using the Fender Twin reverb amps that he'd been using since the fifties - tattered to bits but what a sound. And yes - the legend about him melting guitar pics is pretty much true - if not melting, certainly wearing them out. They lasted about 2-3 songs and then got chucked. I have one somewhere up in the loft, in a box...
