BO DIDDLEY



Bo Diddley, died Monday, June 2, 2008 surrounded by his loving family and close friends.



Born Ellas Otha Bates on December 30, 1928, later adopting the surname McDaniel after his mother's cousin who raised him. One of Rock n' Roll music's principal architects in the mid-1950's, Diddley made an incalculable impact upon popular music for over fifty years. Diddley is most often cited for his signature beat that has powered literally hundreds of rock and pop records for decades. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in it's second year (1987). Throughout his career, Diddley lent his support to a variety of national charities and non-profit organizations, including the Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers and Big Sisters, as well as numerous local organizations in his adopted home state of Florida and in Illinois, where he grew up.



He is survived by four children: Evelyn Kelly, Anthony McDaniel, Terri Lynn Foster and Tammi D. McDaniel, 15 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great grandchildren.
