BO DIDDLEY- Born Ellas Otha Bates, his 1st band was the Hipsters. Played for tips in ’43. Had black female guitar player (Lady Bo-1st female guitarist hired by major act) and a blond white man in his band....
Our next honored song was released in 1955 by Atlantic Records. It only reached #10 R&B but reached #1 in our hearts and the raspberry red 45 played on every jukebox in our southeast beaches. This witty and memorable laid back party tune was also written by the great Rudy Toombs.
“Goin to the party, get with the bunch.
Got a dollar for my nippin and a dime for my lunch”
Still beloved and requested by shaggers...NIP SIP by the CLOVERS
