e jebigaPioneering rhythm and blues guitarist and songwriter Bo Diddley died Monday after having battled for months with problems with his heart, his agent told US media. He was 79. Diddley was hospitalized last year after a heart attack and later had a stent implanted to improve blood flow to his heart. He had also suffered a series of seizures and had been recovering at his home in Archer, southern Florida, when he died, Rolling Stone magazine reported, citing a spokesperson. Known as "The Originator" of rock and roll, Diddley is cited as a key transitional figure of blues into rock and a pioneer of the rock guitar style who influenced such other greats as Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. His dark glasses and signature box-shaped guitars became icons in the music industry after he topped the rhythm and blues charts in 1955 with "Bo Diddley." Some of his all-time hits include "Who Do You Love," "Before You Accuse Me," "Mona" and "I'm a Man." He was born December 30, 1928 in McComb, Mississippi. His name was Otha Ella Bates, which he later changed to Ellas McDaniel Diddley. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Bajramovich je jutros primljen sa tesskim masivnim infarktom i zapoccetim kardiogenim ssokom, rekli su Tanjugu na Klinici za kardiologiju. U 95 odsto sluccajeva srccani ssok zavrssava se tragiccno, napomenuli su lekari i dodali da je Bajramovich bio tezzak srccani bolesnik. Prossle nedelje Bajramovichu je izdat uput za leccenje na Vojnomedicinskoj akademiji u Beogradu, ali lekarima na Klinici za kardiologiju nije poznato zassto on nije odmah otissao na leccenje. Bajramovicheva kucha visse puta je pljacckana, a poslednji put, prosslog meseca, kada je lopov odneo oko 650 evra, koje je, prema Ssabanovim reccima, ccuvao za leccenje. Bajramovich je autor visse od 350 originalnih romskih pesama. Bajramovicha je prossle srede u njegovoj kuchi posetio ministar rada i socijalne politike Rasim Ljijich i uruccio mu jednokratnu materijalnu pomoch od 100.000 dinara, koju je ministarstvo obezbedilo zajedno sa Nacionalnim savetom Roma.

Ogroman, ogroman gubitak...muzicka scena Srbije izgubila je jos jedan deo svoje umiruce eklekticnosti...a pevac tako gigantskog dijapazona emocija i toliko nepatvorene strasti ne moze se utrenirati, klonirati, obuciti. Ono sto je Saban imao neponovljivo je. Care, srecan put, hvala ti na svemu.
