RIP Bo Diddley (1928-2008)

Yesterday, rock & roll lost one of its Old Gods. Bo Diddley passed away of heart failure at the age of 79. His unique style, iconic rectangular guitar, and legendary “Bo Diddley Beat” made him a pioneer, and he’ll forever be known for helping usher in the age of rock music by taking traditional blues and punching it up with driving guitar riffs.
