    The "Bo Diddley riff" is one we've all heard. For example, it's in the song "Not Fade Away" done by the Stones and Grateful Dead, and it's in a popular TV commercial for something today--the song that goes "Who do you love?".

    The Animals have a song I think it is called "The Story of Bo Diddley".

    I missed seeing Bo Diddley in Memphis. I was there on a business trip and Bo was playing but, alas the place was packed and the line was long and it was raining. I wouldn't have been able to see him anyway the line was well over an hour just to get in.

    RIP Bo Diddley.
    RIP Jacob Schlottke; KR1963 and rpayton

    I saw Bo in Tulsa a few years ago, even in his later years he could still play and belt em out. That drum lick though, one a lot of people didn't know he came up with is just as famous as the guitar lick. A great one.
