In Legendary Bo Diddley Part Four, I have to type about one of my heroes in  the music industry, which is sad, but, that also means that I can have another album of him which is good. Let’s read and hear both and see if you agree with both.

Death

Bo Diddley died on June 2, 2008, of heart failure at his home in Archer, Florida. Garry Mitchell, his grandson and one of more than 35 family members at the musician’s home when he died at 1:45 a.m. EDT (05:45 GMT), said his death was not unexpected. “There was a gospel song that was sung (at his bedside) and (when it was done) he said ‘wow’ with a thumbs up,” Mitchell told Reuters, when asked to describe the scene at the deathbed...

It’s amazing that Bo Diddley, isn’t mention more often today, because he’s a giant in my life and he should be in yours. In this blog entitled, Legendary Bo Diddley Part Three, I’m going to show you why you should play his albums more.

Later years

Over the decades, Diddley’s performing venues ranged from intimate clubs to stadiums. On March 25, 1972, he played with the Grateful Dead at the Academy of Music in New York City. The Grateful Dead released part of this concert as Volume 30 of the band’s concert album series, Dick’s Picks. Also in the early 1970s, the soundtrack of the ground-breaking animated film Fritz the Cat contained his song “Bo Diddley”, in which a crow idly finger-pops to the track.

Musicals Of 1929

This year of 1929, their are a list of movies, but none I would call films. Films are what I like and have it onDVD and iTunes, movies are the ones I don’t like, and fall asleep to, but prefers a punch to the stomach, instead. I find nothing to watch, so this blog, I’m changing the channel. Musical Films Of 1929 has it’s moments, but not in moves, so wait until 1930, and maybe I might like one.

I’ve doneR’N’R, R&B., Novelty Acts, but I haven’t done any Country and Western Performers until now.  In Buck Owens Part One I will dig deep and find everything that is own about Buck Owens, and get more albums on my website at the same time. I believe that it’s important to have at lest one album on to let you know what kind of singer and performer he is, instead of just a name on a page with photos. I also want you to understand why I like the  kind of music, and how it takes to be on my website. So here’s Buck Owens Part One, I hope you like it.

In this blog, named Legendary Bo Diddley Part Two, I’m going to type about Bo Diddley(like I’m going to blog someone else with this title. Like The Andy Griffith Show, Staring Any Griffith, like anyone would expect Don Knotts to star in the show), and he might not be the first person you think of that came out of the 1950’s, but as all as I do, then that’s all that matters. For I’m a fan and fan will talk about their heroes, in music, than any other kind of entertainment there is...

It’s another year for movies and another blog for my website. That means I’ll start to text about musicals on every year. With the movie of The Jazz Singer, is the start of The Talkies, and the start of The Musicals. However, their aren’t any Musical Of 1928  why, I don’t know. I can only guess that the movie industry hasn’t thought about musicals yet. This blog won’t have any information about Musical Of 1928, so even if I was to make a blog about a movie, which means I’m going to text you about nothing but my thoughts about nothing, and afterwards, you can hear one of my CD’s.

I’m not trying to type you nothing, because I have nothing to type about, I’m just typing you that their isn’t any musical movies to type...
