Lasting Legacy

Bo Diddley didn't get a whole lot of money for gifting rock and roll with his famous 5/4 signature beat and truth be known he didn't invent it. Blues players like Son House were using the beat at the turn of the century and they got it from their ancestors. Regardless, it is the Bo Diddley beat and if you want to experience a nice collection of covers go over to Brilliant at Breakfast where Jill has gifted us with a nice set of music that owes Bo big time.

Update: Frederick at MCCS1997 has a completely different and all Bo Diddley set for your viewing pleasure. All Bo and some great stuff.
