Did you know? Norma-Jean Wofford was Bo Diddley’s second female guitarist, replacing Peggy Jones (a.k.a. Lady Bo). When Jones left the band, disappointed fans asked Bo Diddley what had become of her. In response, he hired Wofford, nicknamed her “The Duchess”, taught her to play rhythm guitar, and told male admirers that she was his sister even though they were not related
