Many say that the Rock & Roll era began with this man. And maybe it can be said it has ended with his death today at age 90...
Carry on Chuck Berry...

Goodbye Chuck! You were the King of Rock N Roll, not Elvis. But you already knew that didn't you. No Las Vegas show tunes for you. You went out rockin to the end!

I saw him in a London club called The Speakeasy in 1971 or 1972.

The club was a hangout for musicians and the only reason I got in was that my girlfriend's best friend was going out with a guy who was a session guitarist at the time and went on to play with Noel Redding.

Marc Bolan was sitting on a table in front of us and I swear I took a piss next to Keith Richards.

Berry was actually a little disappointing. I don't know why but his pickup band weren't on it at all.

Not that it bothered me that much as I was seeing one of my heroes up close and in the flesh Smile

The last part of the evening got a little hazy and I swore I'd never drink Southern Comfort again (and never did!)

i really liked him.

i think the Back To The Future version of Johnny B Goode is a great tribute
