The Second Coming Of Bo Diddley

Michael Lydon, Ramparts, May 1971

"A person is an individual, and being an individual person is a gas. I have my own way of expressing my soulful feelings. I never wanted to be like anybody else and I can't copy anybody else. I got my own bag of tricks."

Everything I know I taught myself.
— Bo Dlddley
