Ellas "Bo Diddley" McDaniel 1928 - 2008

"If someone ever asks you, what is rock n roll?
Show them this video."

Rock 'n' roll pioneer Bo Diddley, who banged out hit songs powered by the relentless "Bo Diddley beat" that influenced rockers from Buddy Holly to U2, died on Monday at the age of 79.

RIP? Like I told uglyrug, t'ain't nobody gonna RIP no more no how no way. Bo Diddley is there! Toss the harps and hymns 'cause they gonna rip it up now!
