It’s a You Tube feast today. Sorry! I’m incapacitated! This Bo Diddley footage is unreal. Bo used to walk onstage and take a fat roll of bills in a money clip out of his back pocket and put it on his amp like you or I might take our shitty little wallet and keys out before playing. Bo suffered a stroke recently but mere illness can’t stop the man. He’ll be 79 this year. The Originator!

Chris lives for the rock and can often be seen stumbling drunkenly on (and off) stages far and wide. Other hobbies include wearing jumpers, arsing about with Photoshop and trying to beat the world record for the number of offensive comments made in any 24 hour period. He has been married twice but his heart really belongs to his guitars. All 436 of them.
