'His influence is incalculable' says Nels Cline
Cline said that Diddley‘s guitar style was timeless, and that “his influence on rock and roll and popular music is incalculable.”
“His music has always sounded as fresh as the day it was made, and a list of people who have imitated or been inspired by him would be so long that one might have to create a book to house all the names,” Cline told NME.COM.
“His legacy, already felt for decades, will undoubtedly live on as long as there are ears.”
