Southern Discomfort
Before Buddy Holly, before the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and a million unknown garage bands, there was Bo Diddley -- and the beat that bears his name.

A Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and one of the genre's undisputed icons, Diddley helped cast the sonic template of rock more than 50 years ago with a signature syncopated rhythm -- chunk-a-chunk-chuck, a-chunk-chunk -- that became recognized as "the Bo Diddley beat."

Diddley, who often referred to himself as "the Originator" to emphasize his contribution to rock music, died Monday. He was 79.

He walked 47 miles of barbed wire,
Used a cobra snake for a neck tie.
Got a brand new house on the roadside,
Made out of rattlesnake hide.
He got a brand new chimney made on top,
Made out of human skulls.
Now come on darling let's take a little walk, tell me,
Who do you love,
Who do you love, Who do you love, Who do you love.
