The Other Black Orpheus

Bo Diddley (1928-2008)

I opened the door for a lot of people, and they just ran through and left me holding the knob.

I was out to destroy the audience. I wanted to destroy 'em, just make the toughest dude in the crowd pat his foot. I'd find a groove to get 'em by watching feet, and once I got one guy moving, I'd start working on the dude sitting next to him.

I thank you in advance for the great round of applause I'm about to get.
