I am actually a little shocked there isn't already a thread about his passing yesterday considering he's the reason we have most of the musicians at Coachella. Pay the man the respect he's due. It wasn't Elvis that invented Rock N' Roll... it was Ellas.

Yup, there have actually been a couple threads. But things get buried really quickly, so sometimes you need to use search to find them.

The search function isn't all that great. Even the advanced search misses stuff.

Bo Diddley was a true innovator, and an architect of what became rock and roll. He and Fats don't get enough credit for helping r&b cross onto the pop charts. They were such early pioneers that they made "race" and "r&b" records; r&b had not yet had its name changed by white DJs like Alan Freed and Dewey Phillips. Diddley's overamped guitar and hypersexual performances set the standard for rock and roll performances for five decades.

I saw him at a county fair long ago. He was a STUD on that guitar!
