So, today I learned that Bo Diddley died. Most have probably heard of Bo, and if you haven't actually heard his music, you have probably heard George Thorogood plays his songs. His hits include "Who do you love" and "I'm a Man", and he gained a great amount of fame in the late 80's via his "Bo don't know Diddley" commercials with Bo Jackson. Bo Jackson, incidentally, is my favorite athlete of all time, but that's really neither here nor there.
Anyway, it sucks that ol' Bo is gone. He was a showman, he had his own unique style and he wrote good songs. The old bluesmen are all dropping off the face of the earth, and there isn't a whole lot of them left. I advise listening to some BB King and Buddy Guy now, while they are still alive.
Enjoy the video, which was made at some point in the 70's and just shows Bo playing guitar and hollering. Godspeed, Bo.
