After a concert held at Council Bluffs, Iowa on May 13th, legendary blues guitarist Bo Diddley was taken to the hospital where it was determined he had suffered a stroke. Diddley is now in intensive care at Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska. A spokesman said that the 78-year old, who has a history of hypertension and diabetes, is experiencing effects of the stroke on the left side of his brain, where speech and speech recognition centers are located. More details to follow.

God Bless ya' BO..

OMAHA, Neb. - Four days after suffering a stroke, Bo Diddley walked around the intensive-care unit at Creighton University Medical Center, and doctors were encouraged that the singer-songwriter-guitarist would be able to perform again, his manager said.

The 78-year-old Diddley told his audience that he wasn't feeling well during a show in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Saturday night. Diddley's manager, Margo Lewis, said she had the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer taken to the hospital by ambulance when he appeared disoriented at the Omaha airport on Sunday.

Though Diddley's speech is impaired, he's made significant progress.

"We're going to get a guitar for him and put it in his lap and let him entertain people here," Lewis said from the hospital. "People think that would be good therapy for him."

Diddley, with his black glasses and low-slung guitar, has been an icon in the music industry since he topped the R&B charts with "Bo Diddley" in 1955. His other hits include "Who Do You Love," "Before You Accuse Me," "Mona" and "I'm a Man."

Diddley was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 and was given a lifetime achievement Grammy in 1998.

Lewis said it's uncertain how long Diddley, who has a history of hypertension and diabetes, will be hospitalized in Omaha.

He played two Saturday night shows at Harrah's Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs. He planned to fly home to Archer, Fla., before starting a monthlong tour of the Midwest and United Kingdom on May 20 in Dallas.

Those shows are canceled, Lewis said, but she believes Diddley will sing again, even though he'll require speech therapy first.

"Singing a song is different than speaking," she said. "Even when there is a problem with speaking, or hesitancy, we've seen where people can sing perfectly."

Copied from USA Today (Tuesday Edition).....

Bo Diddley recovering
Good news regarding the great Bo Diddley -- he'll be moved out of the ICU in an Omaha hospital into a regular room, and according to his management, they're just awaiting word about when they can transfer him to a hospital in Gainesville, Fla., closer to where he lives.

His business manager, Faith Fusillo, staed "Bo's health continues to improve. He has little or no physical limitations from the stroke except difficulty with speech and speech recognition; but that is improving, as well. I was able to speak with him by phone this morning. He wanted to know where his stuff was: his guitar and the money from the gig. I was so happy because this is the Bo that I know and love, and a real indication that Bo is on his way back!"

Much love and respect to Mr McDaniel.
I've been watching the 4 DVD re-release of "Hail Hail Rock and Roll". Great interview segment with Bo, Little Richard and Check Berry together.
