The greatest of the early rock n' rollers (in my opinion) and the one that made the best and most timeless music. Great songwriter, guitarist, sessionman and innovator. Pity he couldn't have copyrighted the 'shave-and-a-haircut-two-bits' rhythm because then he would have been very, very rich. Came from a different branch of rock n' roll than Elvis and the white rockers so would have existed without EP's influence anyway. Made dozens of ground-breaking singles and a run of brilliant albums that extended well past the 1970s. When he tired of making great RnR (briefly) he moved effortlessly into funk. His live shows were something to behold. All the 50s guys made great music but Bo means the most to me.
