Bo Diddley - Who Do You Love (CD)
Release Date: 05/06/14
Although Bo Diddley is better known as a Rock & Roll artist rather than as a Bluesman, his records are firmly rooted in Blues music, and his most popular material is not only Blues-based, but was mostly recorded with the help of Blues musicians. Bo Diddley was a key exponent in the evolution of Blues into Rock & Roll, by introducing driving rhythms and a hard-edged guitar sound to the music. With his unique guitar playing, African-influenced rhythms, creative song-writing and larger-than-life persona ' the 'originator' ' as he was called, influenced a host of legendary acts, including; Buddy Holly, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, George Thorogood, Eric Clapton and the Pretty Things, the latter who took their name from one of his songs.
