R.I.P. Bo Diddley

The legendary Bo Diddley, whose distinctive playing style influenced too many musicians to mention, died Monday morning at the age of 79. Diddley had suffered a number of medical problems over the past few years, including both a stroke and heart attack last year.

To learn about Diddley's music and his incredible impact, we recommend his AllMusic.com listing (http://allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:acfqxqy5ldae~T1)

and his profile at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's website (http://www.rockhall.com/inductee/bo-diddley).
