R.I.P: Bo Diddley December 30, 1928 – June 2, 2008

Man I did not see this one coming at all.

It's easy to take people even legends for grant it, you dont go to the concerts or buy the music because in your mind you think there always going to be there, than you wake up and there gone.

And you never get a chance to say thanks for the sounds.

Diddley died of heart failure at his home in Archer, Fla., spokeswoman Susan Clary said. He had suffered a heart attack in August, three months after suffering a stroke while touring in Iowa. Doctors said the stroke affected his ability to speak, and he had returned to Florida to continue rehabilitation.

He was 79.

Critics say he was the bridge between blues and Rock n Roll and if you listen to his music you can see why.

I know Heaven is rocking hard tonight.
