    Since Bo was a Gretsch guy as well as a legend, I thought this would be appropriate here.

    So long, Bo. One of the true pioneers or rock and roll.

    my wife patricia and me are very sorry. we play a song with the typical bo-diddley beat. it sounds all so simple, but it´s pretty hard to play it right. we still struggle. that man was a genius and a great guitarplayer.

    Bo was such a huge influence that affected much of the music of the '60's and later through today. Where would the Stones be if not for Bo?
