RIP Bo Diddley

June 2, 2008

My dad went to a blues festival featuring Muddy Waters, BB King and Bo Diddley.  As much as we love BB King and Muddy, dad contends that Bo Diddley was the real showman, an entertainer who whipped the audience into a frenzy and rocked the house.  Even my mom liked Bo, and she does not like blues music.

The man has a rhythm named after him, fercryinoutloud.

You’ll be missed, Bo.
