Hey, Bo Diddley

I have seen this clip of Bo Diddley several times. I stumbled upon it again recently as is the way, in a completely unrelated manner. Every time I see this video I am struck by how Diddley takes the stage. He just strides in, taking his time, pumping that damn guitar in that weird riffy way he plays. His presence is amazing. And then proceeds to completely rock the f%#k out of the place. You can see the audience is going wild.

Just awesome presence, confidence and energy. A colossal performance packed into a two minute song.
