RIP Bo Diddley @ 79
« on: June 03, 2008, 09:31:42 AM »
a great legend in his own rights... an artist that influenced many of our favorite musicians.

did you know that Jeff Porcaro used Bo Diddley's beat pattern on his kick drum for the Rossana shuffle frequently credited to john bonham and bernard purdie?   

there are many others who used this pattern. U2's Desire and George Michael's Faith are easy to remember.

if you hear that 3 beat-2 beat pattern, remember it was Bo.
