RIP, Bo Diddley

Dead at 79:

Bo Diddley, the musical pioneer whose songs, such as “Who Do You Love?” and “Bo Diddley,” melded rhythm and blues and rock ‘n’ roll through a distinctive thumping beat, has died. He was 79.

Diddley died Monday, surrounded by family and loved ones at his home in Archer, Florida, a family spokeswoman said.

The cause was heart failure, his family said.

A shame.

Been There, Felt That

Andrew Sullivan is doing a best/worst 80’s video thing. I’m voting for this one. Probably one of the best videos, for all the reasons he describes. But that’s likely because I come from a town of 2000 people.
