I happened to be on the floor of the American Stock Exchange (what's left of it) when he was there to ring the opening bell a few months ago.

He seemed very patriotic, humble, and full of "God Bless you"'s.

...in Philadelphia, it's worth fifty bucks...

I saw Mr. Diddley about 15 years ago in a small basement club. He was incredible! He is as important to Rock and Roll as Chuck Berry.

God Bless Bo and pray for his recovery.

“History belongs to the victors and in the annals of rock & roll, three men have emerged as winners: Chuck Berry, Little Richard and BO DIDDLEY, a Holy Trinity who were there at the start.”

—Rolling Stone Magazine, August 2005

Prayers out for Bo. Get well.

Right after 9/11 he put out “My eagle is pissed” with the refrain “We are Americans, and we aren’t scared of nothing.”

It hit the spot.

Sad Sad news. Prayers for a quick recovery or the mercy of a quick passing so he can join Heaven's Band.

Music is Bo's life, and if he cannot have his music he will have no life.
