Bo Diddley, a rock ’n’ roll originator, died this morning. He had been in failing health for the past year.
Tributes to Bo are flourishing across the internets... from NPR and MTV, from the BBC and Voice of America...
I blogged about Bo Diddley on the occasion of his last birthday. And I streamed a very cool 11-minute live version of “I’m a Man.”
Now let me stream something else. In 1965, Bo Diddley was interviewed by disc jockey Jim Pewter for U.S. Armed Forces Radio. Click here to hear a 1-minute excerpt of that interview on my Vox blog.
The full 9-minute track is downloadable from eMusic.
RIP, Bo Diddley.
