Jimi Hendrix gets his props and rightfully so. But Chuck was the man who started it all. Thanks Chuck. What a great ride it was!

Influential to more musicians and songwriters than many will ever even realize.


His musical legacy has been legend for decades.


Rest In Peace and thanks for all those marvelous/wonderful 2.78 minute tunes!

and the pianist — usually either Mr. Johnson or Lafayette Leake — hurls fistfuls of tinkling anarchy all around him.
Great line.

I've seen him on stage at least a half dozen times, last was in 1974 when he was about 43yrs.old in Columbia, MD. He could still "duck walk" his guitar back and forth across the stage like a teenager.

R.I.P. Chuck Berry.

Cheers,

Legendary.
