http://www.ireland.com/newspaper/breaking/2008/0602/breaking52.htm  This certainly has been a rough few weeks for losing people!  YSL, Bo Diddley, Harvey Korman, Sydney Pollack, Dick Martin and many more.  I thought these things only came in 3's!

Bo Diddley was a truly awesome performer.  I was lucky enough to have seen him perform live 3 times, most recently about three years ago.  The best was in the mid-1980's in a tiny club in Milwaukee, the "Odd Rock Cafe" (since demolished) that held about 75-100 people.  I sat down at a table in front of the stage and he was so close , I touched his homemade guitar.

R.I.P., Mr. Diddley.  You were the King.

Wow. Apparently, I haven't been watching much TV (or visiting this board!)

RIP Bo! to someone who definitely knew a lot more than diddly!
Does anyone remember that commercial a few years back? I don't remember what they were selling, but I did remember the punch line!)
