Farewell Chuck Berry

The architect of Rock n' Roll, Chuck Berry, has died. He was 90. A lot of our music heroes took to Twitter to pay their respects:



Read this amazing New York Times remembrance - it follows Chuck's entire career!

Truly one of the greats when it comes to music. Personality-wise, not so much. Glad that the NYT didn't sugar-coat the problems he had throughout his career, including the bathroom cam incidents.

Many of our idols are all too human. Noting that doesn't diminish their talents one bit. If anything, it puts those gifts into perspective.

Sorry, Fletch. I don't follow. Do tell. I suspect you are being cheeky. Don't know though.

Scat fella's, scat.... RIP to the guy who punched Keith Richards in the face for touching his guitar,and is responsible for probably theeee most iconic guitar opening riff in history with Johnny B. Goode. Guy was up and running right to the very end,as he was scheduled to drop some vinyl in the near future. My bud Him hit the nail on the head concerning his personality.Guy wasn't going to win any "pillar of society" medals. But the bastard could rock, long before it was cool. Once again, RIP Mr. Berry, and thanks for the riffs every last one of us guitar players have heisted from you over the years. . \m/

Not cheeky at all, Him. I wished you wouldn't haven't even brought up his "security camera 'incident'", but since you did...I had to add my 2 cent thoughts about it.

In other media outlets, I wrote and die-hardly believe how chuck berry wrote and influenced an entire, spectrum-filled audience simply based on his signature song, johnny b. goode.

I'll write more next week (about my presumed cheekiness) for those who are interested.
