Elias Otha Bates, known to the world as Bo Diddley, was one of the most influential guitarists in the history of American popular music. Without Diddley, it could be argued, you would not have Jimi Hendrix, or The Rolling Stones, or even Buddy Holly -- whose "Not Fade Away" was a clear and obvious nod to the Bo Diddley beat. Originally released on Checker in 1962, Bo Diddley's a Twister, was one of THREE albums released by Diddley in that year alone. Truly one of the hardest working men in show business, his productivity did not do anything to dilute his sound, and the classics here include "Detour," "Road Runner," and "Here 'Tis" which The Yardbirds would cover extensively live, but never match the power of the original. Another Bo Diddley classic on Rumble.
