Bo Diddley, 1928–2008

I kind of hate it when blogs become all obituary all the time, but damn, Bo Diddley and Yves Saint Laurent in the same day?

Tomorrow Pacific Standard returns to its regular position as the life-affirming blog of this young millennium. Today any self-respecting chronicle of pretty pictures and gritty records must also include some memorials.

I will not even attempt to detail Bo Diddley's stack of achievements here (practically invented rock 'n roll, opened for The Clash on their first US tour...). The New York Times' obituary department, working overtime, does a great job once again.
