The Story of Bo Diddley


  • Bookmark this page

Now lets hear the story of Bo Diddley And the Rock n Roll scene in general Bo Diddley was born Ellis McDaniels In a place called McCoom, Missississipi about 1926 He moved to Chicago about 1938 Where his name was eventually changed to Bo Diddley He practiced the guitar everyday and sometimes into the night Till his papa's hair began to turn white His Pa said "Son, listen hear, I know You can stay but that guitar has just gotta go" So he pulled his hat down over his eyes Headed out for them Western Skies I think Bob Dylan said that, he hit New York City He began to play at the Apollo in Harlem Good scene there, everybody raving One day, one night, came a Cadillac with four head lights Came a man with a big, long, fat, cigar said, "C'mere son, I'm gonna make you a star" Bo Diddley said, "Uh..whats in it for me?" Man said, "Shut your mouth son, Play the guitar and you just wait and see" Well, that boy made it, he made it real big And so did the rest of the rock n roll scene along with him And a white guy named Johnny Otis took Bo Diddleys rhythm He changed it into hand-jive and it went like this In a little old country town one day A little old country band began to play Add two guirtars and a beat up saxophone When the drummer said, boy, those cats begin to roam Oh baby oh we oh oh Ooh la la that rock and roll Ya hear me oh we oh oh Ooh la la that rock and roll Then in the U.S. music scene there was big changes made Due to circumstances beyond our control such as payola The rock n roll scene died after two years of solid rock And you got discs like, ah... Take good care of my baby Please don't ever make her blue and so forth
