Rock and Roll, Blues legend Bo Diddley is dead at age 79. One of the great players in the foreground of the emergence of Rock and Roll out of the Blues via Rythym and Blues with his signature syncopated sound and wild exuberance. I had the pleasure of seeing him live one time and he really was exceptional. I first heard of him via the lyrics of Dylan’s “From a Buick 6″…Well, she don’t make me nervous, she don’t talk too much
She walks like Bo Diddley and she don’t need no crutch.
So I went looking for who Bo Diddley was and there he was along with Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters and the rest who laid the foundation for the electric explosion.
Sorry this is so short…
