'We were all fans of Bo Diddley’s rhythm and style'
The Strokes’ guitarist, who will release his second solo album ‘Cómo Te Llama?’ on July 8, responded to the news of Diddley’s death telling NME.COM:
“I think we were all fans of Bo Diddley‘s rhythm and style. So many artists have borrowed his simple, but powerful rhythms, his chocolate bar shaped-guitar. Bo Diddley, may you rest in piece and live on through future musicians”
As previously reported, the rock ‘n’ roll pioneer, famed for his homemade square guitar, suffered a stroke in May 2007 while touring in Iowa, which was followed by a heart attack in August the same year.
