RIP at 90. A very good innings for a true musical innovator.

The bloke was a legend and he wrote the all time classic “Johnny B. Goode,”

My Father had a profound influence on me, he was a lunatic.

To quote John Lennon:

If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry'.

RIP

Seminal rock'n'roller (that's not a quip on "My Dingaling"). Eclectic and electric, his best stuff is still fresh today.

As for lifestyle, I didn't think he'd make it this far.

RIP





And some thing different from "Pulp Fiction"

Saw him at the Hammersmith Odeon must be 25 years ago.

Might have to get the guitar and play Johnny B Goode now.

I am still Steve but no longer in Dagenham.

True innovator.

However saw him on a couple of occasions, and while he was good, it was a shame he was so tight that he only ever toured with pick up backing musicians who were definitely on the cheapest union rates Chuck could get away with paying.

The shows were very definitely OK pay me some money, I'll play a few hits and when I think you've had your money's worth, I'm off.

Doesn't take anything away from the pure joy of Johnny B Good

He was infamous for having 'cheap' backing bands and roadies etc..I saw him at hammy odeon.. He did a 25 min set and fecked off... He was rude, arrogant and brilliant... He was rock n roll..!! 3 years later I saw him at the south bank doing a tv show... After that show, he played for 2 hours non stop..brilliant...he'll be regarded as a true LEGEND... And rightly so.

It seems like every band I have seen has had a Chuck Berry song in their set!

Along with Buddy Holly, the greatest rock n' rollers who have had the longest contribution and influence on later generations of musicians.

One of my all time favourite musicians. Regardless of his misdemeanors off stage and his well known fractious manner, he was a rock and roll pioneer whose foundations were steeped in the blues and R and B and one of a handful who deserve the accolade as a legend. To me he should have bequeathed the title of King of Rock and Roll. A massive influence on so many rock stars and musicians from the Stones, Beatles, Quo and matey in my avatar. The list is endless. I wish I had seen him live. 'Hail hail Rock n Roll'.
RIP

Ahh, I'd never heard of that! Still, RIP to the legend Chuck Berry. Then again he did epitomize Rock n Roll in it's truest sense, a crass genius and brilliant musician.

Love this Chuck story, courtesy of PopBitch

Chuck Berry was always the
consummate rock star. When he
released his autobiography he
went on a book tour to promote
it and uber-agent Caroline Michel
turned up to accompany him on
his travels. Chuck had no idea
who she was and simply assumed
his publishers had sent her to
give him a blow job on the plane.

She politely declined, and
refused to fly with him.

Great thread Mr Willow.

Strange thing, when I came to this site a few minutes ago, you suddenly were appearing on my ignore list but I didn't do this. Are there gremlins or are MI5 on your case?
