Door-knocking rhythm[edit]

In England, at least, there is a traditional rhythm for tapping or knocking on doors which resembles the Bo Diddley beat. I presume this goes back in time long before BD. I don't know if there is a similar tradition in the USA. I'm not suggesting that this is the origin of the BD beat, but it does imply that the rhythm is a fairly natural one, and not necessarily of African origin.86.173.167.113 (talk) 14:34, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

It's mentioned in the article. Hyacinth (talk) 22:48, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

"Bo Diddley was one of the first American male musicians to include women in his band"[edit]

Doesn't make much sense, so I have changed it. The citation is a dead link also. Mydogtrouble (talk) 23:20, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

First name[edit]

Was his name ELLIS or ELIAS? This is inconsistent at several points throughout the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Venqax (talkcontribs) 16:38, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

ELLAS. The errors seem to have been introduced in this edit - I'll revert it. Ghmyrtle (talk) 17:12, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
