Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Bo Diddley. By Songfacts®.

Diddley is known for his "Bo Diddley Beat," which is a variation on the hambone rhythm. Some of the famous songs that used variations on this beat include "She's The One" by Bruce Springsteen, "Not Fade Away" by Buddy Holly and "I Want Candy" by Bow Wow Wow.

His first single was originally called "Uncle John," but his record company thought the lyrics were too raunchy, so Diddley wrote it about himself and named the song "Bo Diddley." It was the first of many times he mentioned himself in his songs.

He was introduced to the MTV generation when he played pool against George Thorogood in Thorogood's video for "Bad to the Bone."
