Last night I was thinking of Dudley since we hadn’t spoken in some time and having changed my cell phone I realized Dudley might not have my number. While sitting on the couch I picked up my computer and typed Dudley Gaylord HaleTucson AZ in to google search bar. I was crushed to hear of Dudley’s passing but overwhelmed and happy to see this web site. Dudley would have want us to celebrate his life and boy did he live life.

Dudley Gaylord Hale interviewed on Runaway-6, a Vietnam War Satire that he and his brother Frank wrote about renegade chopper pilots. Check out www.runaway-6.com for more info. On with the show*!\r\n\r\nhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mB0_1KDiC_k\r\n\r\n*Filmed after Dudley had undergone two strokes making it tricky to remember—let alone play chordes in his signature right-hand guitar flipped upside-down playing style. A true sight to behold.
In 2005 we took vacation down to Mexico in Dudley’s beat up RV. Every time Dudley is on camera he steals the show—imagine that.\r\n\r\n
