Bo Diddley, Dead at 79

Video: Bo Diddley – “Hey, Bo Diddley” and “Bo Diddley” (1966, The Big TNT Show)

Rock and roll pioneer Bo Diddley has died of heart failure at age 79.

My favorite thing about Bo Diddley is that he always claimed to play rock and roll. Not the blues, not R&B, not pop. But rock and fucking roll. He was a giant.

  1. It is sad to see that Bo Diddley is no longer with us. He truly was a great guitar player that could always bring a smile to my face with his singing and dancing. May God Rest His Soul.
