A Doctor was addressing a large audience…
‘The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. High fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water.
However, there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have eaten, or will eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?’
Ellas Otha Bates, who became Elias McDaniel, but was of course, better known as Bo Diddley, died Monday, at his home in Archer, Florida, at the age of 79. The cause of his death was given as heart failure.
He was famous for such blues classics as “Who Do You Love?”, Before You Accuse Me”, and of course “Bo Diddley”. His signature rhythm became known as the Bo Diddley beat.
I was fortunate enough to see him play live in England in the early 1980′s, and a great performance it was too, in a dance hall that was big enough to contain the audience, but small enough for it to be a more intimate kind of event than one gets in a concert hall.
