From Wikipedia: “Bo Diddley was one of the first American male musicians to include women in his band, including ‘The Duchess Norma-Jean Wofford, Peggy Jones (aka “Lady Bo”), Cornelia Redmond (aka Cookie) and Debby Hastings, who led his band for the final 25 years of his performing career. He also set up one of the first home recording studios.”
