A real legend to everyone RIP Chuck
A major influence:
Detroit rock-guitar heavyweights salute Chuck Berry (at http://www.freep.com/story/entertainment/music/2017/03/19/chuck-berry-death-detroit-nugent/99368776/ )
No one rolled two chords better. When he hosted Blue Monday, Larry Monroe called Chuck the Poet Laureate of the 1950s. Chuck recently recorded a CD of new material with a son and a daughter, which is supposed to be released this year.
I don't recall Mopars in Chuck's songs. He mentioned a coffee-colored Cadillac, a description that paints a picture in your mind immediately after you hear it. He also sang about beat-up old Fords running hot, probably based on experience.
I wonder if Chuck Berry's mother had any idea her boy was going to be quite this influential?
( Yo! Ted can still bring it, eh ? !! )
Add J.Geils to the list. Only 71.
Guess the body can only take so much abuse...
(Never a better time to get fit. Eat right, drop the tonnage, exercise, etc.)
