How do you know the burglars weren't guitar players themselves subby?

In all fairness, Chuck Berry stole from Marty Mcfly...

I really should go see the legend before he kicks it.

He was just in Ft Worth last week, kind of sad to watch because he would forget what song he was playing or go to the wrong fret. It was worth it though, just to see him and to get to hear the licks that came out good.

What about his cousin Marvin? Marvin Berry?

I've heard that. But that he still puts on shows at his age is impressive on it's own. Willie Nelson can suck it.

I don't care how great of a guitarist he is, the guy's a creep. He set up cameras in the women's restroom of his restaurant.

He just needed something to watch while he played with his ding-a-ling.

FTA-"The other items stolen include power washers and dozens of used car batteries, along with part of a fence." 

Part of a fence? Really? WTF?

Chuck reputedly enjoyed a rather unusual world view when it came to performing the act of love. I don't think your mom would be into his steady stream of unusual romantic expression, if you catch my meaning.

Wow do I gotta take a leak!

I wasn't aware he had that particular kink.

However I think it's safe to assume that it was something that he found later - this was around 1958 and if there was a well known black man who went around pissing in young white girl's faces in the American south in the late 50's, that wouldn't have lasted long

So, seriously, what happened to this guy? Berry wasn't just a great guitar player - he wrote his own songs, which were smart, funny and topical. But he was done by about 1958. Why didn't he stay the course like Johnny Cash or Bob Dylan?

/outside of dope, I'm not aware of any drug problems - it's just weird

Women.

In late '59 he was arrested for transporting a minor across state lines for the purpose of farking. He spent two years fighting that, and over a year in prison after being convicted.

Success can test one's mettle as surely as the strongest adversary.

Just wait until the Voyagers arrive in other star systems millions of years from now, carrying his music on a gold record for alien hipsters to discover.

"tried to" bwahahaha!

supposedly Johnson created the Chuck Berry sound, and was fired. Keef found him, driving a bus, and revived his career.
Chuck is also known as the biggest arsehole in the music biz, and my brief encounter with him reinforced that, in spades.
He did invent "scat" singing, so he's got that going for him.

Onkel Buck: Best cover of Johnny B Good ever


No, that sucks. Then again, if some 14 year old metalhead hears it and decides to listen to the original and falls in love with Chuck Berry all over again, that would make it ok.

No, seriously, it's awful.

FTA: "Berry was one of rock's pioneers..."

Not dead yet! Still plays out, has a standing gig. Even if you're 85, and you can still bring it, you're still a rocker.

I live down the street from his home base, a bar called Blueberry Hill. He plays there once a month and there's a statue of him across the street. Great bar. St. Louis does have some cool spots.

I've been to the loop, but never to Blueberry Hill. I'd love to check it out sometime. IIRC, Bible Belt Sinners have been there a few times.
