Born as Ellas Otha Bates (later as Ellas McDaniel due to his adoption) in 1928, Bo Diddley learned how to play violin at an early age. He received his first guitar at the age of 12.

Upon his first involvements with the 708 club in Chicago, he created a sensation in 1951 through his own style and his self-made equipment: a tremolo made from an old clock and auto parts. His self-made guitar with a rectangular body out of Bakelite would eventually become his trademark.

In 1956 Bo Diddley received his first record deal from Chess Records for a single with the titles 'Bo Diddley' and 'I'm A Man.' Willie Dixon also appeared on this single.

In the years that followed Bo Diddley was always to be heard on the charts (in 1960 with the single 'Roadrunner) and developed into a versatile musician. In 1962 he had his last hit 'You Can't Judge a Book By the Cover' (Willie Dixon) for the time being. Always recurring in his songs is the so-called 'Bo Diddley Beat', often called 'Salesman's Knock' as it resembled the way the salesmen would knock door-to-door.
Bo Diddley's influence has remained the same from the 70s through the very present. Even musicians from the punk and new wave scene have reverted back to using his songs.

On 2 June 2008 at the age of 79 Bo Diddley died of heart failure in his Florida home.

Bo Diddley released '20th Anniversary Of Rock & Roll' in 1976, its recordings not lacking the presence of the biggest rockstars of the 70s, like Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice, ‘The Who' drummer Keith Moon, guitarist Alvin Lee (Ten Years After), Elvin Bishop (Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, B.B.King u.v.a.), Albert Lee (Dave Edmunds, Everly Brothers) and Leslie West (Mountain), as well as Joe Cocker, Billy Joel und Roger McGuinn (Byrds).

The bonus tracks date back to a 21.Februar 1984 Radio Bremen „Bo Diddley & Mainsqueeze' concert at the Schauburg.

1928 als Ellas Otha Bates (später aufgrund einer Adoption Ellas McDaniel) geboren, lernte Bo Diddley als Kind zunächst Geige zu spielen. Mit 12 Jahren bekam er dann seine erste Gitarre geschenkt.

Bei seinen ersten Engagements im 708 Club in Chicago erregte er 1951 Aufsehen durch seinen einzigartigen Stil und sein selbst zusammengebautes Equipment (ein Tremolo aus einer alten Uhr und Autoteilen!). Seine selbstgefertigte E-Gitarre mit rechteckigem Korpus aus Bakelit wurde schließlich zu seinem Markenzeichen.

Einen ersten Schallplattenvertrag bekam Bo Diddley dann 1956 bei Chess-Records für eine Single mit den beiden Titeln „Bo Diddley' und „ I'm A Man'. Auf dieser Single wirkte auch Willie Dixon mit.

In den folgenden Jahren war Bo Diddley immer wieder in den Charts zu hören (1960 mit der Single ‚Roadrunner‘) und entwickelte sich zu einem vielseitigen Musiker. 1962 hatte er seinen vorerst letzten Hit mit „You Can't Judge A Book By The Cover' (Willie Dixon). Immer wiederkehrend in seinen Songs ist der sogenannte „Bo Diddley Beat', oft auch als „Salesman's Knock' bezeichnet, weil die reisenden Händler in dieser Weise an die Haustüren zu klopfen pflegten.

Der Einfluß von Bo Diddley blieb die gesamten 70er Jahre über sehr präsent, sogar Musiker aus der Punk- und New Wave-Szene griffen auf seine Songs zurück. Am 2.Juni 2008 starb Bo Diddley im Alter von 79 Jahren in senem Haus in Florida an Herzversagen.

1976 veröffentlichte Bo Diddley das Album '20th Anniversary Of Rock & Roll', an deren Aufnahme sich viele Stars der 70er Jahre Rock-Szene beteiligten: Tim Bogert und Carmine Appice, der „The Who'-Schlagzeuger Keith Moon, die Gitarristen Alvin Lee (Ten Years After), Elvin Bishop (Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, B.B.King u.v.a.), Albert Lee (Dave Edmunds, Everly Brothers) und Leslie West (Mountain), sowie Joe Cocker, Billy Joel und Roger McGuinn (Byrds).
