Bo Diddley is best known for his 'Shave and a Haircut - Two Bits' primal beat which pulses through many of his famous recorded works, although to be fair, it was not his only style. Freddie King gets typecast too - as 'the guy who does the instrumentals' despite being a guitar player who sings. Welcome to the contrariness of the Blues. In 1928, Otha Elias Bates McDaniels was born in McComb, Mississippi but raised in Chicago where he started playing in the early 1940's. He started recording in 1955 and cut his classic 'Who Do You Love' in 1956. He moved from Chicago to Washington D.C. and became a fixture on the burgeoning rock'n'roll package tours, back when R'n'B meant Rhythm and Blues. He put on a wild performance, wearing the world's loudest jackets and playing wonderfully weird-shaped Gretsch guitars. The 'Egyptian-looking' script across the tip of the print is the rhythmic notation for his trademark voodoo beat. Also included in the print are the lyrics to Horace's favourite Bo Diddley tune, 'Who Do You Love'.
