  3. Aw man. That's sad news. He was certainly a pioneer and was a huge influence in the direction of rock n roll music. How many other songs were influenced by the opening guitar line to Johnny B. Goode, alone. I can think of half a dozen right off the top of my head, and that's just one song. Well, he lived a good long life. Thank you Mr. Berry, and rest in peace, you've earned it.

    I was around for the birth of Rock n Roll and he was one of those spanking it's fanny. His influence is incalculable. And, he performed concerts up til the end. Maybe today is really the day Rock n Roll died..

  10. They bought a souped-up jitney, it was a cherry red '53,
    They drove it down New Orleans to celebrate their anniversary
    It was there that Pierre was married to the lovely mademoiselle
    "C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell
  11. Damned right. Well said.

  12. Sad, sad news. Just heard about it on my Saturday night oldies show in the car on my way home. Always one of my favorites and one of the true pioneers of rock'n'roll.
    Vaya con Dios, Mr. Berry.

    Earlier this week, I was thinking about Chuck Berry, so I went to youtube and listened to his music for a couple of hours. This past fall he completed a new album of new songs, soon to be released, entitled simply "Chuck" and dedicated to Toddy, his wife of 68 years. It was his first album in 38 years, and his last. When I was in high school, I pretty much memorized the lyrics of all his songs. and my buddies and I would sing them as we went "ridin' along in my automobile....with no particular place to go..." RIP Mr Berry.

    Info about the new album

    Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame's 1st inductee R.I.P. Mr. Berry! Joe

    Can you image the way I felt
    I couldn't unfasten her safety belt

    Ridin' along in my calaboose
    Still trying to get her belt a-loose
    All the way home I held a grudge
    For the safety belt that wouldn't budge
    Crusin' and playin' the radio
    With no particular place to go
  25. Saw Chuck perform on a flat bet truck one summer evening, what a memorable concert.
    Rest in peace one of the greatest song writer and guitarist of out time.
