Bo Diddley's a Gunslinger!

I am not 100% happy with the likeness on this one, but there it is...
Diddley was once asked if he appreciated the fact that so many artists were influenced by him and very often incorporate his ‘Diddley Beat’ into their work. To this he answered flatly -I'm paraphrasing somewhat-‘No, it doesn’t pay the rent. If they paid me I’d feel better about it’. Brilliant answer I thought.
