Very much looking forward to returning to Ireland for a couple shows in a my favorite places and a few days of sightseeing and inspiration. If you do happen to find yourself in County Cork or on Inishbofin Island pop in for a Tullamore Dew and/or a song …
Rebecca and I were lucky enough to see Bo Diddley play Alderney Landing in Dartmouth in 2006. The show was really cool with Bo playing his hits while experimenting with weird effects pedals in ways I wasn’t expecting.
After the concert, Lori, the promoter asked if we’d like to come back stage to meet Bo. I asked my drummer, Dave, who was there with his brother Steve, if he wanted to join us. He declined but handed me his fishing license and asked if I could get Bo to sign it for him.
Becky and I were escorted backstage after the show and were told we’d have to wait until Bo finished his steak before meeting him.
