    Classic, but felt bad for all those young white girls in the audience...watching them made me think about the Steve Martin film where he didn't have rhythm.

    Along those lines, years ago I went on a dive trip to the Bahamas, during the Macarena fad. The DJ played it every fifth song.

    That's probably the first time they'd ever heard it, but were told to be on TV they had to play along and shake it.

    That's the Bo Diddley beat

    Meh... Opinions vary, but when you compare the volumes of their musical catalogs including the covers by others of their songs, the Beatles do the smoking.

    Must be before his cigar box guitar. That riff was used on so many songs. Never liked the song.

    The back up singer playing the guitar.... that just might be the first time a female guitar player ever appeared on tv playing an electric guitar.

    That Bo Didley box sounds like about 60 years of album-oriented fm radio in one box, dude. To say this guy has been copied is like saying "some picket fences are white!"

    My brother was a close, personal friend of Johnny Otis. He traveled around the country with the Johnny Otis Show for a while.

    I was able to go back stage at a few events where Johnny and his band performed and met quite a few people who had hits in the 50's and 60's. Many were very friendly and appreciative of the interest shown in their work. BB King thanked me for asking for his autograph and actually wrote "Thank You" on an album cover I handed him.

    Some were complete pr*cks who always made sure that people were kept far away from them. Bo Diddley, Etta James, John Mayall and a few others fall solidly into the latter group.

    Just got a year free trial of SiriusXM. Really enjoying the two stations for ‘60’s and ‘70’s hits. I can’t help but sing along - and that be bad.

    I don't think there were two white girls in that whole audience that were clapping in unison.

    The Beatles were the end true of Rock 'n' Roll. Buddy Holly baby! Buddy Holly forever.
