Do-Boy Diamond: the real talent behind the Adele phenomenon

Post  pinhedz on Thu Feb 16, 2012 2:49 pm

Adele just won all those Grammys, mostly on the strength of her song "Rolling in the Deep."

But as we all know, "Rolling in the Deep," is just a reworking of Do-Boy Diamond's song "Going Away blues." bounce

I think Dave Ray's version of "Going Away Blues" is the best one:

Here's Do-Boy (actually Dubois, but his parents couldn't spell) performing "Long Haired Doney:"

Do-boy said he gave up playing at social functions in 1959, because they kept him up too late. Laughing

Adele's single on yootoobe has 1,309,857,399 views.

4 piano chords 4 times, then the same thing shifted a little 3 half tones, then repeat--SuBo does better than that. Shocked
