Story 3
Bo Diddley - When I was 19 years old, in the early 1980's, Bo Diddley was performing at a club in Ottawa, Canada. As I walked past the bar before the performance, I saw him sitting down having a coffee and I said hello. He offered his hand, which was was three times the size of mine, and related me that the airline had lost his guitar (his trademark box-shaped guitar). When I expressed my disappointment, he smiled and said, "But that's okay, I can play anything." The next day I read in the newspaper that the club's owner had lent him a guitar that he had bought for his own son's 13th birthday present. So this kid, the son of a bar owner, received for this 13th birthday a guitar that had been played by Bo Diddley.
