After reporting last week that blues icon Bo Diddley suffered a stroke during a Council Bluffs, Iowa live performance, Billboard.com reports that he is in fact doing better. While he still has difficulty speaking, he has not suffered any long-term physical damages.
Diddley's business manager, Faith Fusillo, issued a statement saying, "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 this is the Bo that I know and love, and a real indication that Bo is on his way back."
