RIP Bo Diddley
I listened to several Bo Diddley performances on You Tube last night and the beat is still going in my head this morning. I don't know how those audience members inthe video can sit still to that hopping beat! Many years ago, my brother was going to make a mix tape with only songs with the Bo Diddly beat. I don't think he ever got to it. Mr. Diddley grew up in Chicago and I read yesterday that he was always skeptical of the music industry, "A dude with a pencil is worse than a cat with a machine gun."
My son keeps pestering us to take him to Cleveland to the Rock and Roll Hall of fame. I hope we can go sometime soon. He'll love it.
