Bo Diddley Artist Snapshot:

A self-proclaimed man among men (and deservedly so), singer/guitarist Bo Diddley is still the only musician in history to have a beat named after him. Diddley's raunchy, distorted 1950s sound and African-derived rhythm have been an enormous influence on pop and rock, from contemporaries like Buddy Holly (whose classic "Not Fade Away" is a de-facto Bo Diddley song) to blues wiseguy George Thorogood, whose remake of Bo's "Bad to the Bone" is being heard somewhere in a movie or a TV commercial even as you read this. Diddley lived and rocked into the 21st century before dying of heart failure in 2008.

Product Notes

"Sounds nice," Bo Diddley tongue-in-cheekily observes of his music in "The Story of Bo Diddley," one of three self-named tunes on this 20-track examination of his classic '50s and '60s Checker Records sides. Not only was the former Ellas McDaniels rhythmically sharp enough to have a beat named after himself; he had a great guitar sound and a seemingly endless supply of shaggy-dog stories, lover-man boasts, silly jokes, and complaints with which to fuse them. His Best boils down the two-CD Chess Box, including signature pieces like "Bo Diddley" and "You Can't Judge a Book by Its Cover" alongside unjustly obscure tunes such as "Pills" (later covered by the New York Dolls) and "Dearest Darling." Great. --Rickey Wright
