'He was an American original' says Billy Corgan
Billy Corgan has added to the heartfelt tributes to Bo Diddley, the legendary guitarist who died yesterday (June 2) after suffering heart failure.
The Smashing Pumpkins frontman said that Diddley was “one of the true pioneers of rock and roll, and an underrated songwriter.”
Corgan added: “His influence can still be heard everywhere. I just bought an old Bo Diddley 45 at a record shop today before I heard of his passing. He was an American original.”
