That's so sad. I touched the hem of his cloak once, it was as close as I've ever got to feeling sanctified.

Very sad news. 'Diddlin' will never die.

Was pretty amazed first time I heard some old Bo Diddley records. Mad chicken scratch, so rude and raw sounding compared to contemporary rock.

That Wayne & Wax Blogariddims podcast where Wayne mixes the tune 'Bo Diddley' in with Dem Bow riddim is pretty great too for outlining how far that "Bo Diddley beat" traverses across contemporary moozik. I notice they touch on the clave connections in that NYT article above.

EVERYONE will have seen this, but just in a case they haven't, & also because you can NEVER EVER see it too many times ...

That clip fucking shreds. Bless 'im.

I bought "Black Gladiator" a few weeks ago. Time to go home and blast it loud.
