Peggy “Lady Bo” Jones Dies at 75 Years-Old

Peggy Jones, later known as Lady Bo, was an innovative and expressive
guitarist who was an original part of Bo Diddley’s sound from 1957 to
1962 and influential in her own songwriting and musical endeavors
thereafter.

Although there is no obituary currently published, a few
hours ago today, Ponderosa Stomp Foundation—an
annual music festival taking place in New Orleans, LA—who hosted Lady
Bo in 2011 announced her death.

A few days prior, husband and bass
player Wally Malone wrote on his Facebook page, “Today is one of the
saddest days of my life. My wife and partner of 47 Years has been called
up to that great rock & roll band in the heavens to be reunited
with Bo Diddley, Jerome Green and Clifton James”.

Peggy Jones played a
pivotal role in rock and roll and remained a main source of inspiration
for hundreds of musicians to follow. Her immense dedication, passion and
talent will forever be remembered and influential in the history of
music.

Rest in peace Lady Bo. We love you. [Read More]
