not too many guitarists have a beat named after them: tell a bunch of musicians to play on a Bo Diddly Beat and they know what you are talking about. he was awesome. Anyone remember his cameo in Spinal Tap?

Bo Diddley was the feature band at our Princeton University's Senior Prom in 1966.

I have got to say that he was the hardest driving musician I even heard then, and ever since. Dancing to his music was pulsating, driving, scintillating, etc. Whnen he played you danced, and you understood his beat.

Luckily I still have his music on records (remember 33-13? RPM records?).
