Rhythm Maker Bo Diddley in the Age of Rock on GitHub
dougsillars published Ellas B. McDaniel and Denis Lane’s book Rhythm Maker Bo Diddley in the Age of Rock on GitHub:
This book derives, in part, from my numerous conversations and interviews with Bo Diddley conducted between the years 1989 and 1995. Because of this lingering gestation, it should be noted that some of the circumstances described in the earlier chapters have inevitably changed, and certainly all of the children have grown.
Ever the gentleman, Bo was not only generous with his personal time, but also extended to me access to his relatives, friends and associates, many of whom are mentioned or quoted in the composite family and performance scenes described in the text. I am more than grateful to him for these gestures.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
