Legendary musician, guitarist, vocalist……Born Elias Bates McDaniel in McComb Mississippi, and raised in Chicago, He influenced more big acts than I can name here. He is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his many contributions to R & B and Rock music. If you want some blues, listen to Bo.

He is buried in Rosemary Hill Cemetery, Bronson, Florida.


He co-wrote the song “Love is Strange”, sung by Mickey and Sylvia, a hit (that doesn’t sound like the blues to me) in 1957.
