In Memoriam: Bo Diddley

'Musical legend Bo Diddley died last week at 79.
Somehow during my youth I missed Bo Diddley. I had heard of him and as I got into music later on I knew of his contributions to Rock, R&B,  Jazz and Rap in terms of influences. But I never sat down and listened to Bo.

His survivors include his children, Evelyn Kelly, Ellas A. McDaniel, Tammi D. McDaniel and Terri Lynn McDaniel; a brother, the Rev. Kenneth Haynes; and 15 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. Please pray for his family.
