Bo Diddley,who developed an insistant, driving syncopated, beat, was one of the originators of Rock 'n' Roll, is an influencial figure throughout pop, who started playing, as a kid, on a street corner in Chicago with a band called the Hipsters and later, the Langley Avenue Jive Cats, died today of heart failure at the age of 79.

May he rest in peace.
