RIP Bo Diddley!

First we lose an idol in fashion and now we lose an Rock n' Roll idol. Bo Diddley has passed away due to heart failure. He was 79.

Diddley born Ellas Bates, suffered a heart attack last year, just three months after being struck down by a stroke during his tour of Iowa and has since been sick.

Diddley is best known to be a key figure in the transition from blues to rock n' roll.
