Chuck Berry at 90

Thanks for the memories.  I grew up on Chuck as a teen during his heyday.  Johnny B. Goode is the first song I learned all the words to.  In addition to the Beatles, the Stones covered some of his songs.  Certified Musical Genius, poet, and astute businessman.

Saw Chuck play a few times in the late 90's in St. Louis at the club named in his honor, The Duck Room.  Such a treat to see an all time great in a small room.  Now if only the inspiration for the adjacent Elvis room had returned from the great beyond to play monthly shows!
