About Me

Guitar soloist, musician, and songwriter Ihab Badran known as Beebo, was born in Egypt in the very early 50's.

He started playing the drums at his home garage in the suburb of Maadi at the age of 14. Then he joined a local band named the "The Tramps."

As time progressed, he played profes?sional?ly in different bands in Cairo. First, he joined the late musician 'Kamel El Sherif,' playing at the night clubs then. After that, he joined 'The Cats,' for two seasons playing at a night club called “Tamerina” at the Pyramids area, until he finally joined 'The Black Coats, and they were playing mainly in front of the Montaza Palace in Alexandria every summer, and in winter at different night clubs in Cairo.
