I read somewhere that Bo Diddley was actually a name that he came up with when he was an aspiring prize-fighter. He didn't want his wife to know he was fighting, so he came up with that alias. Years later, he'd be a Louisiana Sheriff (if I've got that right). The Bo Didley beat - the basis for so many songs by so many bands, used classically in the ABB's, "Nobody Left to Run With Anymore". There goes another one that I'll miss. God bless you, Mr. Didley!

That's a shame . . . caught Bo a number of years ago at a Chicago Blues Fest. He could already be considered an old-timer at that point, but what a fun time.

Now there's a guy that has left a permanent stamp on his industry.

RIP, pappa Bo.

Sorry to hear about this. If you think about it there not to many of the early rock and rollers still around. Who's left, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Fats Dominio, Chuck Berry, there ain't many. The "Bo Diddley Beat" has been the basis of many a great rock and roll song.

RIP Bo Diddley, you were a class act.

Rusty,

I think Bo was a sherriff deputy in New Mexico, not Louisiana

Just heard this also.
I was lucky enough to spend some time with Bo in the '80's when some friends of mine were his band for a show he did for WMNF's "Tropical Heatwave" here in Tampa.
A night I remember fondly.
Ride in peace Bo.Thanks for giving us the "beat".
