Berry was a guitar hero to many, including Keith Richard and Jimi Hendrix. Imagine being a young teenager in those days ~ scarcely any similar music elsewhere at the time, except jump-blues and garage imitators, of which were relatively far between in those days.

Easy to glean those must've been pretty exciting times.

I only ever owned one Chuck Berry record, a CD, which was about 7 years ago. Having never had anything by him in my collection, I figured I ought to have at least one offering from the reputed "King" of Rock & Roll. The fact of the matter is that his recordings never really sweetened my cuppa tea, though I've enjoyed others who recorded his tunes. I listened to the Disc about five times (just like Black Adder) and then sold it on Discogs.
Recognising an artist's status as a pioneering and influential forerunner isn't quite the same thing as fandom, for my own at least.

90 years seems a pretty good run for any rocker, anyone at that.
