RIP Jody Williams...from the street corners of Chicago’s South Side to the hallowed halls of Chess Records, Jody’s unmistakable sound and often replicated guitar licks — from Bo’s “Who Do You Love,” Howlin’ Wolf’s “Evil” and “Forty Four,” and Sonny Boy Williamson’s “Don’t Start Me Talking” — will continue to entertain and influence generations of music lovers the world over. RIP, Jody 🎸

Remembering the Mighty Bo Diddley today on the 10th anniversary of his passing. Considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th Century, Bo broke new ground in rock and roll’s formative years with his unique guitar work, indelible African rhythms, inventive songwriting and larger-than-life persona. Gone but never forgotten. We love and miss you, Bo. 🎸

Thanks to Paste Magazine who just ranked “Bo Diddley” #12 on their list of The 50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All Time. “To limit Ellas McDaniel (aka Bo Diddley) to being a blues or R&B artist is to ignore the impact the Mississippi native had on the birth and growth of rock ’n’ roll.” —Josh Jackson (h/t Jim Vorel)

Shout out to the great Paul Simon, who announced his retirement from live touring today. A real rhythm aficionado, Paul performed in front of a large image of Bo during his 2011 tour dates.
