Default Chuck Berry has passed away

Can you overestimate the influence he had on rock & roll? Just an entertainer and the world would no doubt be a different place without him. Clearly, being a good and successful musician is not entirely dependent on being a good person or we never would have known him. I suppose that there are many of us who can identify a song as being by Chuck in two notes.

I still have a old cassette tape of his, featuring some of his best hits. I remember parts of one comedic song describing swimming across a turtle? infested water way, very funny.

As I remember, he did have a not- so-nice side, but perhaps not unlike parts of an otherwise less famous society, in which the dark side does not become as exposed.

The man knew how to perform and entertain.

Check was very influential in the early days for rock & roll. But don't forget unless he gets a call from his cousin MARVIN BERRY he may have never discovered the sound he was looking for
