R.I.P. Bo Diddley

For those who have not heard, Bo Diddley died yesterday at the age of 79, as per this news story.

Bo Diddley, Rock's Rhythm King, Dies

I suspect that very few people reading this journal, let alone living today, who have not been touched, directly or indirectly, by Bo Diddley. There is scarcely a rock or blues band that has not felt his influence. His death is a sad one, and a terrible loss for the music industry.

Bo Diddley's making music in a better place now. Rest in Peace.
