If not for Bo, we'd all be listening to swing and hillbilly music. He may not have invented rock & roll, but he was one of the most important early pioneers.

His continuing to have to tour at age 70 is just one more example of how the music industry screwed over artists 'back in the day.'

It was amazing what he accomplished with a home-made guitar.

Much like Marty McFly.

- Bo Diddly

- for those of you your later 20's or older you might remember that quote from a shoe commercial.

An actor dies and everyone lines up to quote them or say they'll be missed. A musical genius leaves us and 24 hrs later there's still only a couple posts about it.
