Song of the Day: Bo Diddley, “I’m A Man”

Elias McDaniel, known far and wide as blues singer/guitarist Bo Diddley, would be 92 today. "I’m A Man," one of his originals, was the flip side of "Bo Diddley," his signature song. The double-A side single reached #1 on the R&B chart in 1955. Muddy Waters covered the song many times over the years, including on his 1977 album Hard Again.

    1. That’s a different song than this one. Chicago did a cover of The Spencer Davis Group’s, which in turn was covered by Leonid and Friends. This one was covered by Muddy Waters. Both are great songs.
