I thought it was going to be hard top last week’s Sunday Blues. While I was sifting through my CD’s today, I found some nuggets. The tracks posted below are from blues artists that incorporated rock & roll rhythms into their music.
Bo Diddley, sometimes called “The Originator”, has inspired countless acts that have followed in his musical footsteps, including The Rolling Stones, The Who, and The Yardbirds. Sadly he died of heart failure in June. There are some great tracks worth downloading on Diddley’s 50th Anniversary Collection.
