R.I.P., Bo Diddley...

I just read that one of my favorite musicians, Bo Diddley, has died. For those of you who love guitar rock and are only familiar with Mr. Diddley from his "Bo knows..." Nike commercials, I highly recommend checking out his stuff. It straight up rocks.

Here's a video of one of his more well-known tunes:

Great icon of RnR! No one will forget that sound of his! He lived near us in a town not far from here in ABQ and was deputy sheriff there for a few years!
