Bo Diddley; Gunslinger! Rest In Peace.

He shaped our musical world some, for the good. His kind of basic genius will not pass this way again.

Had guitar...did travel.

I'm so glad I got to see him in concert in 1975.

A friend of mine passed along a link where you can download Bo Diddley's Beach Party, a live album recorded in Myrtle Beach, SC in 1963, as yet unreleased on CD.

Enjoy!
