New York - R.I.P. Boo

2.6.08

Sorry we haven't had too many new posts today, we're all still reeling from the news that legendary bluesman Boo Diddly died today at the age of 69. Diddly's ragged no-nonsense guitar-playing had a profound impact on our musical sensibilities from the time the blistering opening riff of "Sneakin' Around" first graced our young ears, and it hurts to have such a vital figure of our teen years stolen from us while still at the prime of his game. If you need us for the rest of the day, we'll be at home in mourning.
