    Default Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr. "Chuck Berry" R.I.P.

    "he could play the guitar just like a ringing a bell"

    Without him rock and roll would have been very different.

    Died yesterday at the age of 90. He definitely did it his way, performing weekly up until approximately two years ago.

    Keith Richards doesn't have to worry any more about having lifted all of Chuck Berry's licks.

    One of the true pioneers. I can't say I listened to him regularly but music in general is or was better for him being around.

    Is this where I'm supposed to say something clever?

    People can go on all they want about Elvis as the "King of Rock and Roll," and while he certainly greatly widened the audience for the music, the true Founding Fathers were Chuck and the also late Bo Diddley.
