    It would have to come down to a choice between "Who Do You Love?" and "Bo Diddley"...

    It would be a toss-up between "I'm A Man" and "Ride On Josephine". But "Roadrunner" is pretty cool, too. :)

    Impossible to answer. There's his versions, and then all the covers. Hard to judge. Did he do a bad song? I'm not aware of one.

  10. Since I'm playing it on stage tomorrow night , I 'm gonna have to go with "I Can Tell' for now but I really like just about all his stuff.

    Two of my favorites also, Willie! And for the trifecta, "You Can't Judge a Book (By Lookin' at the Cover)". All three are a lot of fun to play bass to as well. Love all three...
  12. One of my favourite versions of I Can Tell is by the Pirates (Mick Green on guitar). Just an amazing live band!

    Nice! I sure wish I could sing lead while playing bass. But the bassline has to be the ultimate in simplicity for me to do it. (Sigh...) :banghead:
