The Four Horsemen of rock

In the collective history of rock music there has been millions of photographs taken. A few have become iconic, like the Beatles landing in America in 1964. Being that this is Black History month I came across this iconic photo and it screamed, “SHARE!’ to me.

Legends of blues and rock music; Willie Dixon, Little Richard, Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry.
Willie Dixon, Little Richard, Bo Diddley & Chuck Berry…the founding fathers of rock ‘n roll!

Just in case you don’t know who these guys are, Willie Dixon was the bassist for Muddy Waters and wrote many of Muddy’s hits including Seventh Son and Hoochie Coochie Man. Little Richard put the scream in rock ‘n roll, Bo Diddley gave rock its basic rhythm, and there’s hardly a guitar lick that doesn’t have Chuck Berry’s signature on it.
