“The Duchess”, born Norma-Jean Wofford, played with Bo Diddley and his band from 1962-1966. An acclaimed guitarist (with her iconic ‘Cadillac’ and ‘Jupiter Thunderbird’ Gretsch guitars), brought some style to the group amid audience requests for a female player after Peggy “Lady Bo” Jones left the scene. Norma & Bo pretended to be siblings in the public eye long before Jack & Meg White covered their first blues song.
Can’t not love that beehive & those glitter leggings.
