Was anyone ever a Bo Diddley fan?

My uncle came home from the navy with two albums and we were hooked. Went from slow dancing to Julie London to Go Bo Diddley Go.

    Yeah, me. I just watched his Bo Diddley song video. I love those old videos with all the singing and dancing.

    Only for a short time as a young teeny bopper But it was fast, spunky and beat country music at the time. It was nice to have something with a beat to dance to. Good old days, when music was clean. amen

    El Dorado Dave says it all. The man was one of the legendary founders of what we call Rock 'n Roll today and his music still 'moves'.

    WAS and STILL AM!!!! His style of playing can be heard in Rock&Roll as well as R&B today. A lot of his songs have been re-cut by musicians . He, along with Chuck Berry's style of playing made Rock& Roll as well as R&B as well as C&W what it is today

    Source(s): Rock and R&B C& W fan

    I still am, probably came to him a bit late with some old vinyl from junk shops etc.

    There's some tracks on YouTube for anyone who's wondering what they missed:

    Not an avid fan, but certainly appreciative of his work and talent!...not to mention his outlook on life! He has been quite ill recently! :-(

    No, I was never really a fan of his. He cut some good stuff tho.
