LATEST: Bo Diddley's manager is hoping music will help the I'M A MAN singer/songwriter recover after suffering a stroke.
The 78-year-old rock 'n' roller was admitted to a hospital in Nebraska on Sunday (13May07) after showing signs of disorientation following a concert at Harrah's Casino in
Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Diddley has started walking around the intensive-care unit at Creighton University Medical Center, but his speech remains impaired.
The guitarist's manager, Margo Lewis, says, "We're going to get a guitar for him and put it in his lap and let him entertain people here. People think that would be good therapy for him."
