I was very fortunate to have the oppuritunity to play with Mr. Bo Diddley in the early seventies. A legend then. A legend now. Such beings have a way of changing the direction in the music scene

Gibson and you are recognized around the globe.

Tell Johnny Ace his recording of "pledgeing my love' is still on our juke box along with Chuck Willis's "CC Rider", Jimmy Reed,Muddy Waters, To all of the black entertainners that gave us rock and roll back in the 50's, Elvis, and all of the rock and rollers on that big stage in the sky, we will not forget you. Your talents were a gift to many generations. And never forget, most of the kids you influenced turned out alright.
