'He was a huge hero of mine' says Guns N Roses guitarist
“He’s a huge hero of mine and the fact that he knew who I was was a huge compliment,” Slash said.
“Bo Diddley created a myth that was uniquely his own. An entire rhythm is owed to just one guy and that’s pretty rare,” he said.
“He was such a trooper and a timeless individual. I’m hoping the pioneers of rock like Bo Diddley won’t be forgotten.”
