Bo Diddley
Bo Diddley is currently in intensive care after suffering a stroke on Sunday. He was taken to the emergency room at Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha, NE.

The 78-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's condition was listed as "guarded" said publicist Susan Clary. Diddley, who has a history of hypertension and diabetes, was hospitalized Sunday with elevated blood pressure and glucose levels after a concert in Council Bluffs, IA in which he acted disoriented.

Tests indicated that the stroke affected the left side of his brain, impairing his speech and speech recognition, Clary said.

Being a Type 1 Diabetic also, I can emphathize with how he feels. Having low blood sugar levels (70 or below) or high(150 and up, mine has been to 600 numerous times) I know what its like to be at the mercy of a disease that is sometimes hard to control. Along with being a Diabetic Im Bi-Polar and a former Heroin addict.... sometimes life hands your a hand of cards you dont like, you just have to play the hand your dealt. Bo you are in our hearts and for those who DO PRAY do so for a legend.

Not enough people know what this man did for music, as he was one of the first of many to get screwed by the industry. Get well BO!!
