Bo Diddley, Dead at 79

Legendary bluesman Bo Diddley will play no more. Diddley died today at his home in Florida at age 79.

Saw Bo Diddley play at the Hawks Nest (I think) with Ronnie Hawkins, the (his) band behind him and two wasted go-go dancers, all celebrating Hawkins birthday. It was a slow weekday night, lots of rain and only four people in the audience. Bo Diddley played his ass off.

He was awesome.

Well Annamarie what can I say beyond I'm truly flattered. Thank you very much for your kind words. I'm not so sure about the excellence part of it but I'm sure you'll agree that these times in which we live afford an abundance of thought provoking issues and concerns. Thanks again.
