RIP Chuck Berry

Recommended Posts

Very sad, made it to 90 years old, pretty amazing. The influence he had on the whole of rock and roll is almost immeasurable. The music lives on in our hearts and souls.

I was lucky to see Chuck twice in the late 60's and twice in the 70's during his "My Ding a Ling" resurgence. He was a showman and as a founding father of Rock & Roll, he did not disappoint. RIP Mr Berry. Ya made it to the Promised Land.

"King", well said ramallo!

My mother in-law told me a story about seeing Chuck Berry at a small venue concert and only about 20-30 people showed up. He wasn't upset though and had everyone come up and get close around him in a semi-circle. All smiles and full of his patented vigor he rocked the place for a full show.

Only now, looking back can we see that those special people (Chuck Berry, and Elvis), The King's of Rock-n-Roll started a renaissance in music lasting 25 years that may never again be duplicated in any era of time. No other art form touches our emotions and communicates to the masses as music does, to be King of that renaissance is quite the lifetime achievement. Chuck Berry may have passed away but he will always be with us!
