Ellas McDaniel (December 30, 1928 – June 2, 2008)

The man himself, Bo Diddley, died today at his home in Archer, Florida. He had been in ill health since a stroke and a heart attack late last year.



His death is a great loss to both rock AND roll.

Best Bo Diddley rip-off: "Willie and the Hand Jive" by Johnny Otis or "She's the One" by Springsteen?*

(*The Stones are a whole separate category.)

And does he leave behind The Duchess, cited by Eric Burdon as "his gorgeous sister"?

The "Times" obit today stated the Dutchess was not Bo's sister.
