R.I.P. BO DIDDLEY


He was the coolest.

Here's his Pitchfork obit.

As I noted about a year ago when Bo had his stroke, this photo was taken back in 1985 by Barbaraellen Koch in the lobby of the mayor's office in Santa Fe. Mayor Louis Montano made him an honorary Santa Fean. I interviewed Bo for the Albuquerque Journal to preview a show at Club West. We talked about his years in the state during the 1970s. For awhile he was a member of the Valencia County Sheriff's Reserves and actually arrested a drunk driver, who, Deputy Diddley said, had mouthed off to him.

Tune in Terrell's Sound World Sunday for a decent tribute.

Enjoy some YouTubes below.
