    The R&B guitar legend who has inspired many many of our greatest performers (The Beatles, Buddy Holly, Rolling Stones, The Smiths, White Stripes, Iggy & the Stooges among many others) has died today aged 79.

    This is just my little tribute, may not be great but it is one none the less.

    [​IMG] Sad to hear. He was a legend and a true innovator. His inspiration and influence will resonate in great music as long as it is recorded.

    Not sure what I believe in these days, but hopefully the music just got a little better somewhere.

    For a man who pioneered the sound of rock and roll and inspired some of the greatest bands, I have nothing but respect for him. Rest in peace, Bo. [​IMG]
