RIP Bo Diddley

What a huge loss today. He really did put the rock in rock and roll.

Bo Diddley December 30, 1928 - June 2, 2008

It is with great sadness that I learned that rock and roll pioneer Bo Diddley passed on this morning. He was not only one of the inventors of rock and roll, but a legend that never outgrew his fans. I'm proud to have met him and shaken his hand.

I trolled him in much more depth here.

Rest in peace, Bo. You were awesome, you were necessary, and you will indeed be sorely missed.
