bo diddley

Rock pioneer Bo Diddley is dead at age 79.

Diddley never shied away from speaking about how African-American musicians of his generation were ripped off by producers and promoters.

His music was often imitated and built upon, but the man himself was a pure original. How many musicians have a beat named after them?
