Gibson sends heartfelt well-wishes to the one and only Bo Diddley, who is in stable condition at the North Florida Regional Medical Center in Gainesville, Florida, after suffering a heart attack on Friday.

A true pioneer of rock and roll, Bo fought his way up through the tough Chicago blues scene of the 1950s, where he held his own with Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Chuck Berry, and countless others. Driving a powerhouse open-E rhythm on an electric guitar drenched in reverb and tremolo, often accompanied with just a snapping snare drum, skittering maracas, and the guffaws of sideman Jerome Green, Bo created some of rock' s most timeless and exhilarating early songs. To this day, Diddley's "Who Do You Love," "Hey Bo Diddley," "Roadrunner," and "Crackin' Up" sound as innovative and raw as the day Bo cut them in the legendary Chess Records studio. 

Doctors at the Florida hospital say that Bo is in stable, but very serious condition. He is conscious after a tough weekend in intensive care. Get well soon, Bo, from all your friends at Gibson.
