Bo Diddley leaves intensive care

Following stroke

Bo Diddley has left intensive care after suffering a stroke.

As previously reported the legend was taken to intensive care after acting disorientated following a show in Council Bluffs.

It has been reported that Diddley has been transferred from the intensive care unit to a regular room at Creighton University Medical Centre in Omaha.

His business manager Faith Fusillo said: “I was able to speak with him by phone this morning. He wanted to know where his stuff was: his guitar and the money from the gig. I was so happy because that is the Bo that I know and love, and a real indication that Bo is on his way back.”

Fusillo added that while Diddley is still having trouble speaking, he appears to have suffered no long-term physical damage from the stroke, reports Reuters.
