Bo Diddley’s condition improves after stroke

Associated Press - May 17, 2007 5:15 PM ET

Singer and musician Bo Diddley today walked around the intensive-care unit at Creighton (KRAY’-tun) University Medical Center as he recovers from a stroke.

Doctors in Nebraska say they’re encouraged that Diddley will be able to perform again.

The 78-year-old Diddley told his audience that he wasn’t feeling well during a show in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Saturday night.

Diddley’s manager, Margo Lewis, had the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer taken to the hospital by ambulance when he appeared disoriented at the Omaha airport on Sunday.

Though Diddley’s speech is impaired, he’s made significant progress.

Lewis says it’s uncertain how long Diddley, who has a history of hypertension and diabetes, will be hospitalized.

He had planned a monthlong tour of the Midwest and United Kingdom — beginning this weekend in the Dallas area.

Lewis says those shows are now canceled.
