Bo Diddley, RIP

It's gonna be a long week

so anyway, rock and roll icon Bo Diddley died today at age 79. The world is a lesser place for his passing. As my brother Thayrone mentioned this afternoon on his "On the Edge with Thayrone" talk show; everything that musically came after Bo Diddley was influenced by Bo Diddley.

So, if you'll excuse me; I've got "You Can't Judge a Book by It's Cover" queued up on the trusty MP3 player and the volume turned up to eleven. Again.

we'll have words again soon, although you may have to speak up.
