Bo Diddley hospitalized.

I was just browsing, Officer, I didn't mean nothing, I just found it right there in the street.

In the street?

In the street!



Maybe somebody knows what this is. All I know is it's the kind of thing you don't get to see every day. Posted two days ago on YouTube.

Here's a track you don't hear so often.

Cadillac
1960, with Jerome green, Frank Kirkland and God only knows who else. Bo is a master.

UPDATE: AFAIK Bo had a stroke while on tour in Iowa. He played two shows last Saturday. TWO SHOWS! He's 78 for God's Sake! Then got taken to hospital. He's up and walking and as tough as they come. He was my first concert. 1978.

Whatever you gotta do, Bo. Godspeed.

latest info I can find from the Chicago Tribune

RE: Hank Ballard

While Ohio based King was Hank's label & released Hank's most famous record the Twist...it's true the version I have posted on my site is the version he recorded for Vee Jay

it's just that Vee Jay decided against releasing it...

Hi
