Can't believe nobody has put this up!
Berry was one on the popular music legends,sad to see him go, but considering his lifestyle he did well to reach 90.
I was very lucky to see him live in concert in the Sixties, he did a barnstorming set dressed all in Red Leather and his Scarlet guitar. One the great gigs I have been to, and like many others who gone in recent times, he will never be replaced. RIP.

Yes very surprising but I suspect more a reflection on the state of DC than on the esteem that Chuck Berry is held.
Chuck Berry is a true Rock legend, now gone but the songs will live forever. Chuck Berry was arguably the most influential of the rock and roll giants, he was responsible for popularising the guitar as the lead instrument, it was piano on most early rock and roll records. His guitar licks and poetic lyrics produced numerous timeless records. School Day, Maybellene, Johnny Be Goode, Roll Over Beethoven, You Never Can Tell, Carol, Sweet Little Sixteen, Let it Rock, and Promised Land.....no doubt I have missed a few classics. However my favourite was the fantastic, 'Down The Road Apiece'

I saw him then at a concert in our local cinema, had them every 2 weeks in those days. He was a real legend, amazing he lived to 90, must have had good genes.

" No particular place to go" is a great piece, the guitar riffs are tremendous. Still sounds fresh today.
