Lightning-diddling-training-fever

Love the dancing in these vids, thought you’d might like it too! Lighting Hopkins is one of the last truly great blues musicians in my book (before butt-rock blues came along and ruined all the interesting rhythms and syncopations, I hate guitar solos), this video comes from a documentary about Lighting entitled “The Blues According to Lighting Hopkins” it’s pretty cool to see him in his prime playing at a small party with two amazing dancing girls.

Bo Diddley is probably one of my favorite rock’n rollers along with Chuck Berry and Little Richard, he pioneered a really unique guitar sound and rhythmic drive, he has a great back up dancer and guitarist nicknamed “the Duchess” you can see them move in this video here.

Just scratching the surface… it’s always time for a Soul Train line!

Groove…
