Hey Bo Diddley!

Another one of the good old ones is gone. Bo Diddley, King of the Beat!, 1928-2008. Not only king of rhytm, but also cool to look at, with his square guitar (later than the video and cover). And boy could he make some good song titles! Here are some from the album pictured above (Bo Diddley - Chess 9198155, 1958): "Bo Diddley", "Hey' Bo Diddley", "Diddley Daddy" and "Diddley Wah Diddey"!
