Bo Diddley: 1928 - 2008

Bo Diddley died Monday of heart failure. He was 79. The New York Times sums it up -- "a singer and guitarist who invented his own name, his own guitars, his own beat and, with a handful of other musical pioneers, rock ’n’ roll itself."

Around 1990, he teamed up with another Bo for a memorable commercial...

Thanks for the memories, Bo, and thanks for that whole rock 'n' roll thing.
