"My fire-breathing musical career was literally launched by black musical thundergods such as Bo Diddly, Little Richard, James Brown, Wilson Picket, Sam & Dave, Albert King, BB King, Freddie King, the mighty Funk Brothers, and the epitome of Rock ‘n’ Roll Gods, the master, Chuck Berry. The music these gentlemen created gave birth to my music and all great, moving, soulful music. We owe it all to them."
I saw Bo Diddly in '91, at the concert, he played a handful of songs that I don't think were ever released. He spoke to the audience that night on the topic of social consciousness, shoutin' out, "In America, this should not be, this should not be in our country. Not in America." (Bo Knows)... our Country was in decline. Wish a song could have come from this impromptu improvisational Blues jam.
