Bo Diddley, Dec. 30, 1928 to June 2, 2008. He was always one of my favorites. I could listen to him even at times when I wasn’t listening to any American rock’n’roll. (Like now?) R.I.P. Bo Diddley, one of the greatest.
(P.S. I actually wrote this on June 6 (I hadn’t been very up on the news this week), but it goes better here, at June 2.)
