Bo Diddley Is Dead



He will be missed. He was one of the best. He still is one of the best.

You can check out one of his songs in my contribution to The Under 3 Green Monkey Mix.

I'd strongly recommend you check out the wonderful collection The Chess Box for a broader picture of his wonderful songwriting, guitar-playing and singing.

The Bo Diddley beat lives on!

Splotch- Do you have the album with him and Chuck Berry together? It's quite good.

I've got most of his albums, but I don't believe I have that one.

Bo Diddley Bo.

I will spend the rest of my day pounding out the Bo Diddley beat on my dining room table, my desk, or any other surface I can find.

RIP.
