Bo Diddley Dies at Age 79

Bo Diddley, a pioneering creator of rock and roll music, died of heart failure yesterday at his home in Florida, at age 79.

Ithaca Blog paid tribute to Mr. Diddley, with hopes for his longevity, in a post on May 18, 2007, after he suffered a stroke.

You can check that post for our feelings about Bo Diddley, and see today's New York Times for its thorough obituary and appreciation of his life and music.

For now, we say again, God bless Bo Diddley.
