Here are a couple more great blues legends from the past. Bo Diddley and Albert Collins. Collins was known to continue playing after the club he was performing at had closed by going outside and playing on the sidewalk. Bo Diddley is probably a house hold name these days his real name is Ellas Bates. His rumba style beat blues became a signature for him. The name Bo Diddley is derived from a primitive string instrument know as a diddley bow. Collins passed away in 1992, Bo died last year. What you see Bo playing is a well crafted facsimile of an old cigar box guitar.
