Because I suffer from hazy memory spots I checked with Muddy's recording. It is ,"I am a man spelled m.h.i.n." unlike my misstatement.

I think it is an arbitrary choice for sound without special meaning. (Unless there is some reference I do not know.)

I think it has something to do with the whole ‘mannish boy’ thing that Muddy, Bo Diddly, and Willie Dixon were doing at the time. It was partly a political statement about black men always being referred to as ‘boy,’ though they were, in every aspect, men.


Edit: I believe he says, “I'm a man. Spelled M. A child. N.”

Hi Morley, I can see your point about political point being there. It is there even with such more straightforward matters as,"now past 21, have lots of fun, full grown man , natural born lover man"

I looked on line for words to the song and see a match to what you list. I was puzzled listened to the song again then tried some youtube versions later than the 1955 version. I kept hearing m h i n. I listed to Bo Diddly version, it is the same song but he clearly spells the less confusing m.a.n.

Then what may be a tiny moment of understanding hit me. Perhaps I am hearing M. A.child.N. but my brain is putting the sound together as M h i n . Well or something like that.

Great! What can you tell me about him, and what do you think he contributed to rock history? Or in your opinion, what is so special about him?

And out of curiosity, have you seen the new Elvis movie? It was good!

I gave you links to 2 different threads that have a plethora of information on Keith Richards, his beginnings, influences, all the musicians he's played with and essentially his history in music. You'll have to run through those threads or search for his interviews on youtube. I can tell you this much.

He's a pirate.

Try this quick clip and see if you can locate this special on Netflix. I noticed in this he's referring to the Celtic influence on American music as I stated previously on this thread. If it's no longer on Netflix, find clips like this from it. Then notice what comes up on your recommended video feed on youtube.

We love Keith Richards like apple butter simmerin' on the top of the stove.

:D Yes. I'm going over it.

Does another guitarist come to your mind?

DT there are a bazillion youtube interviews with Keith Richards on youtube. All you have to do is search for them and give them a listen.
