    A totally outstanding, underrated musician. RIP old man!

    I patted him on the back and told him he was great... onstage, during an encore.

    When he invented the duck-walk while playing the guitar, he immediately transcended the guitar beyond 'instrument-hood' into a glamour-weapon... thereby elevating rock performances into true 'events'. The pressure created...

    Not to mention blending-in his unique style of song-composition. Roll-Over, Beethoven was probably the key tune that left 'love' out of it, to create a rock-anthem which celebrated rock itself. Johnny B. Goode celebrated the guitar and the music 'scene.'

    Black kids kinda splintered-away from the Berry-sound.

    He was from St Louis, lived in St Charles County (I think it was Wentzville) and had a restaurant there. Dirty old man got into trouble there as he had a little peephole into the ladies restroom. But that had nothing to do with being a great musician. When my sons were kids they would play Johnny B Good on their guitars. He was a local legend.

    There's a restaurant in St Louis named Blueberry Hill, in an area not far from Washington University. Chuck would sometimes play there. I never was lucky enough to eat there when Chuck was there. But I did see him on a plane. He was in first class. I saw him on my way back to the cheap seats. I said Hi and he tipped his hat to me, obviously glad to be recognized.

    RIP Chuck Berry

    Got this from the St Louis Post-Dispatch. It's like a history of rock n roll. He did live in Wentzville, Mo. There are some interesting facts, like he was thrifty with his money, liked to invest in properties, served several prison sentences (during one of them he wrote his most famous songs). Like Trump, he didn't drink. I'll just provide the link. It's a long, but at least to me, interesting article.

    Remember passing by that place near Wash U. He seemed like a great guy.
