Bo Diddley on youTube

What better way to remember the great man than by checking him out on youTube. He was a very visual artist with his dancing, his prototype guitars and with Duchess grooving away alongside.

Bo Diddley
In glaring technicolour from late 60's I'd guess.

Road Runner
Great 1960 tv black and white clip, great black and white band. Buperb picture quality as well.

Hey Bo Diddley
With a band as big as his flairs, this clip comes from 1985. Just like Bo there's horn a plenty.

Who Do You Love? (with Ron Wood)
Live from Tokyo, 1988. Those Stones boys worshipped the Chess guys as is obvious by the genuine smile on Wood's face.

I'm a Man
Powerful, menacing performance from Rennes, France, 1989. Forget the yera, this is vintage.

Let The Kids Dance
Wow. Fabulous 1965 clip from Hollywood a Go Go, complete with neat intro from show host KHJ Radio's "Boss Jock" Sam Riddle. There's the bonus of plenty of Bo dancing.

You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover
Just watch it! Nuff said.

Bo Diddley is Crazy
1996 promotional video for the single from the great A Man AMongst Men album.

Dueling Guitars (with Chuck Berry) Battle of the guitar from Let the Good Times Roll, 1973. I love the part where Bo pretends to run away from Chuck's duckwalk.

The Blues and Elvis - LAST INTERVIEW
You can't look at Bo without letting him remind us that he invented everything. Taken from Electrified: The Story of the Maxwell St Urban Blues.
