Chuck Berry
« on: Time Format »

Chuck Berry has passed at the age of 90.   :'(

Although one would think that this person would need no introduction, there is yet another generation of guitarists and music lovers that have come after him.  I hope they know who he was too.

Every one of us here who have ever picked up a guitar with the intent to play Rock music....of any genre of Rock owe it to this man.
This was the man who inspired the likes of Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Ted Nugent, etc.
This was the man who wrote Rock songs before there was Rock songs.  We would have no Cream without him.  No Led Zeppelin. No Doors.
No Rolling Stones.  Maybe not even the Beatles.  Then there would be no Black Sabbath, no Iron Maiden, no Judas Priest......
I could go on endlessly, and branch farther into more genres and even list some Country guitarists, but the point is made. The lineage isn't always clear and direct, but if it was Rock......Chuck Berry gave us Rock.   

He gave us Rock with attitude.  He gave us the idea that a loud guitar could be cool. 
He gave us Johhny B. Goode., Maybellene, and Roll Over Beethoven.
We as Rock musicians owe nearly everything Rock to Chuck Berry.   RIP and continue to Rock the Afters.   :'(

That video where The Boss and the E-Street band have to remind the tune like any other band is awesome...
A very good way to remember a Legend.

I have to passionately disagree with you Iperfungus.

Why remember Bruce Springsteen playing a song of Chuck's when you could just remember the great man by him playin' one of his songs?  Totally baffles me!


Below is a shit hot version of the song!  He does the splits in the middle as well!!  I did this a few time live also but I never knew Chuck did it.

DAMN. I feel like Chuck was 90 a few times already.

He was/is the best showman. Jimi would've never tried half the crap he did without Chuck. Huge loss for the music world and the world in general. RIP Johnny B. Goode (aka Chuck Berry)
