Bo Diddley. Nowadays, even poor kids don't need to make their own guitars from scrap. How many of his generation are left, I wonder?

Unfortunately not many Peter, the greats who are left will probably not be around for too long.

Another sad aspect is that many of the most passionate, never rise to greatness.

There are some truly magical guitar players but do to circumstance will never get discovered. Most are happy that way, but that's part of it being a true passion.

While I'm not a big fan of his work, I do recognize that BD got screwed out out of lots of royalties.
