"Tombstone hand and a graveyard mind..."

from one of my favorite songs of all time....

"I walk 47 miles of barbed wire,
I use a cobra-snake for a necktie,
I got a brand new house on the roadside,
Made from rattlesnake hide,
I got a brand new chimney made on top,
Made out of a human skull,
Now come on take a walk with me, arlene,
..... tell me, who do you love? "

RIP Bo Diddley (who died of heart failure this month...)

when on the Tool tour, Bo was playing next door at one of the venues, here is a great shot of the boys with Bo.
i will always remember his cameo in the film "Trading Places"---perfection...

You're so right, Bo's death was a great lost for the music world! Even classical gal me will miss his music! So sad, thanks for sharing your picture!

Goodness, first I'm scratching my head about Duran Duran and then I'm telling you I know nothing about this Bo Diddley, only his name. But those lyrics are bizarre.

I didn't know diddley. And now I never shall. *rim shot*

I'm sure he got that a lot.
