Bo Diddley, also known as Ellas McDaniel, was one of the most distinctive and influential artists in the transition of popular music from blues and R&B through to rock n roll during the 1950s. His music was best-known for his use of the guitar riff based on the 3/2 clave, sometimes known as shave and a haircut, two bits, and it was a motif taken up by many artists after he popularised it with his early hits.
