Otha Ellas Bates
A pioneer of rock 'n' roll and a huge influence on the '60s British beat boom but his roots were in the blues. His "Bo Diddley beat" was a staple for most of the White Boy Blues bands (the Pretty Things were named after the above track) especially THE number one, The Rolling Stones. If it's good enough for the Stones, it's good enough for anyone!
