Comment:

Believe it or not, Bo Diddley trained as a classical violinist, before U-turning into the blues and setting out in search of "that freight train sound." He found it alright, and a whole lot more — brandishing his signature cherry-red slab of a guitar and whipping up the hypnotic "hambone" beat that overrides the nervous system like some sort of musical witchcraft. In many ways, Diddley powered the British Invasion during the '60s: his riffs and swagger run through the work of the Animals and the Rolling Stones (who covered "Mona"). Which says nothing of his experimental, electrifying guitar distortions, which anticipated the freak-outs of Jimi Hendrix. In 1964, when John Lennon was asked what he was looking forward to seeing in America, he replied quite simply, "Bo Diddley." Then again, that was the impact of the mighty Mr. Diddley, one of the few musicians who could rightly be called a legend. And that legend lives on — even now that he's laid down that famous cherry-red slab.
