Roger Daltrey On Jools Holland

Roger Daltrey appeared on Jools Holland's "Hootenanny," which is the New Year's Eve celebration of Jools regular U.K. show. Roger sang Muddy Waters' "Mannish Boy" with Jools and his R&B orchestra. By the way, I like this so much it's going up on both of my blogs.

According to Wikipedia, "it is a arrangement of (and an "answer song" to) Bo Diddley's "I'm a Man" (which in turn was inspired by Waters' and Willie Dixon's "Hoochie Coochie Man."

The Who sang "I'm a Man" which appeared on their 1965 album, My Generation. However, that album when released in the U.S. with a different album cover and was called The Who Sings My Generation. Strangely, it did not include "I'm a Man."
