Just read it ~ Rest In Peace to the true "King" of Rock & Roll;

Elvis was a Prince, not king...
...so said Tommy Chong.

RIP Chuck Berry. Perhaps the true originator of rock n roll. That's saying something. You can play with your ding a ling to your heart's content now.

Berry was a truly great poet and songwriter, and did at least as much as anyone to pull rock and roll out of gospel, blues, western swing jazz and country. Music after 1955 would have been very different without him.

He could also write some crap mind, and it's a pity his only number one was that bloody ding a ling rubbish when his earlier work was so much better. Though I guess a black musician getting a mainstream charts number one in 1950s USA just wasn't going to happen.

Sad news. A true pioneer, and a character. Still performing until recently I believe, which is a testament to the rejuvenating powers of rock and roll.

So the King of Ding-A-Ling is dead at the age of 90. Not that suprising.
Rock In Peace.

The man was born in the horse and buggy days.
Coal oil lamps, well water, outdoor johnny's, firewood for heat, etc.
Definitely one of the precursors of rock and roll.
Roll (Move) Over Beethoven.

Undeniably a huge influence in the early days of R&R. His private persona seems to have been less savoury though.

The term "Legend" is oft over used at these sad times. For Chuck Berry though "Legend" almost doesn't do him justice.
