Bo Diddley Dies

Sad news that rock and roll legend Bo Diddley has died at the age of 79. His distinctive beat and styling of rock and blues laid the groundwork for future artists like the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, Bruce Springsteen, and many more. Among the classics Diddley wrote were "I'm A Man," covered by the Yardbirds, and "Who Do You Love." He was a 1987 inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
