Song Of the Day – “Bring It To Jerome” by Bo Diddley

To think that Ellas Otha Bates (aka Bo Diddley) started out studying classical violin is kind of mind blowing when you consider his contribution to the annals of Rock history. Thank goodness someone gave him a guitar! The “Jerome” in this 1955 classic is Jerome Green who played maracas on numerous Chess records including many of Bo Diddley’s finest.
