A true giant of Rock + Roll. His contribution to this great art form is incalculable.

If he had been treated fairly by record companies,promotors, and publishers....he wouldn't have been forced to perform until his death. All his talent with so little remuneration!
Bo Diddley was the father of rock n' roll. He will be missed.

Bo, rest in peace!
